Item description for Mosses: Utah and the West by Seville Flowers...
This title was first published in 1973 by Brigham Young University Press and is a classic of the bryological literature.
Mosses : Utah and the West made a substantial and original contribution to our knowledge of the mosses of the Western United States. Before Flowers began his extensive bryological research Utah was considered to have a relatively small and uninteresting moss flora because of its generally low rainfall. This book however, treats 256 species in 77 genera and 18 families a large proportion of which were discovered in Utah for the first time by the author.
The beautifully executed and original illustrations form one of the finest features of this book; Seville Flowers became an extraordinarily accurate and skillful bryological artist through the years.
Mosses : Utah and the West is a monumental work on mosses of Utah and contiguous areas, providing keys, illustrations, descriptions and information on geographical distribution and habitats and detailed observations by Flowers.
This book will be useful to bryologists, range men, foresters, ecologists and other botanists. It will serve as a guide to the moss flora of most of the intermountain region.

I am so pleased to have found this book for my bryophyte library!! Wish I had this book when I first started working with mosses, but better late than never. E. Lawton's book is good and considered a classic, but this book provides more info. Lots of good supplementary info about mosses. The ink drawings are incredible. I highly recommend this book.
