to bryologists.

Illustrated keys to genera and species

Creu CASAS, Montserrat BRUGUÉS, Rosa M. CROS, Cecília SÉRGIO & Marta INFANTE

Barcelona, 2009. ISBN 84-92583-55-3. 177 p. Hardcover

PRICE: 40 €.

Sociedad Española de Briología (SEB) members: 20 €.

This volume is concerned with liverworts and hornworts of the Iberian
Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. Biogeographically it covers the
Mediterranean and Eurosiberian regions. This handbook comprises
identification keys to generic and specific level with corresponding
illustrations. Each genus includes a short morphological description
referring only to the species that appear in the present work. In
monospecific genera the species name follows the description; if
plurispecific a key to species is given. We recognised 286 species,
which represent 68% of the European hepatic flora.
