Endorsements

This book has been produced to highlight the conservation importance of the mosses, liverworts, and hornworts that are found on cultivated land. These plants may be tiny and unobtrusive, but close examination reveals their true beauty. The stunning photographs will surely inspire an increased level of interest in this relatively little-known group and enable even the novice bryologist to gain a better insight into the rich diversity of our bryophyte flora.

  • An introduction to the mosses, liverworts, and hornworts associated with cultivated land
  • Information on the 86 bryophytes found in arable fields
  • Illustrated profiles of the 47 bryophytes most closely associated with arable farming, highlighting those included in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan
  • Superb close-up photographs and illustrations showing the key features
  • Distribution maps based on the latest available data
  • An easy-to-use approach to the identification of this challenging group
