Item description for Introduction to Bryology by W. B. Schofield...

This richly illustrated text/reference, originally printed in 1985, provides a comprehensive introduction to the structure, evolution and interrelationships of the bryophytes. Leading bryologist W. B. Schofield gives a broad, international view of bryology that goes beyond a basic understanding of structure to present the bryophytes as a vital group of living plants. After a solid foundation in the morphology of mosses, liverworts and hornworts separate chapters, organized to allow easy comparison of the evolutionary lines, offer definitive information on the biology of the organisms. Topics covered in detail include cytology, genetics, chemistry, ecology, physiology, geography and the history of the discipline. Emphasizing the biologic significance of the bryophytes, the author uses an abundance of elegant original illustrations to show the structure, diversity and the natural beauty of the bryophytes. There is also an extensive glossary of bryologic terminology. W. B. Schofield is Professor Emeritus at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He is a former president of the American Bryological and Lichenological Society.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Bryology?

Introduction to Bryology  Nov 21, 2007
Great book. Nicely written with terrific illustrations. Chapters are laid out by classes or orders of bryophytes, and there are several chapters about more general aspects such as physiology and genetics. The appendices offer information on collecting, mounting, and culturing as well as a basic key. Each chapter has its own references for further reading. A great intro to bryophytes.
