A Flora of the Liverworts and Hornworts of New Zealand
A Flora of the Liverworts and Hornworts of New Zealand is an illustrated guide to an important component of New Zealand’s green plant flora, to be published in four volumes. There are now 652 species of liverworts and hornworts known from the New Zealand region (Kermadec, North, South, Stewart, Chatham, Auckland, Campbell, and Antipodes islands). Detailed notes are provided on distribution and habitat, and discussions under family and genus descriptions place the New Zealand and Tasmanian flora in the context of the world liverwort and hornwort flora. When this four-volume flora is completed, it will be the first flora for these two groups of bryophytes since Hooker’s 1864–1867 Handbook of the New Zealand Flora.
