Published by Dorset Environmental Records Centre

This is the first account devoted solely to the mosses and liverworts of Dorset for over 120 years. Since 1880, when H. H. Wood, rector of Holwell, published ’Mosses of Dorsetshire’.

This book describes the history of recording, the many different habitats present and the current state of the Dorset bryophyte flora. There are distribution maps for all species found in more than one locality. The book is intended both for the general naturalist and for the experienced bryologist.

There are descriptions of the 458 species recorded with maps for 405 species. The introductory chapters cover history of recording, changes in the flora and bryophytes habitats.
