Read, Cassia, Bernard Slattery

A guide for students and absolute beginners, technically accurate, but free of technical language, this is an attempt to present a little known part of the plant kingdom to a new audience. Dozens of species described, most with multiple illustrations.   The guide contains an introduction explaining the life cycle of mosses and their importance in the ecosystem; tips on how to approach identification; detailed descriptions of common, striking species; and appendices carefully distinguishing mosses from liverworts and lichens.   Underpinning its publication is the belief that mosses are, before anything else, beautiful: a lot of joy is to be had in exploring this minute dimension of the natural world.   This is a community project of the Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests generously supported by The Norman Wettenhall Foundation.   A number of photographs have been replaced in this revised edition.
