Mosses of dry forests in south eastern Australia book

by Cassia Read and 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, sample page overleaf

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.
