Australian Mosses Online




Greetings!

The Australian Biological Resources Study is pleased to announce Australian Mosses Online...

http://www.anbg.gov.au/abrs/Mosses_online/index.html

...providing detailed descriptions, ecological information, keys, line-art, colour photographs and distribution maps of Australian mosses.

Beginning with 4 families, we aim to have an additional 15 to 20 family treatments available by the end of 2012.

For various reasons, a second hard-copy moss volume  of Flora of Australia will not be published, at least in the short to medium term. Australian Mosses Online will make available as many as possible of the treatments originally intended for that book. Furthermore, these will benefit over time from input by users, especially in terms of expanded distributions and additional high-quality and authenticated images.

Best wishes

Pat McCarthy
