The complexity, diversity, and beauty of liverworts make them absorbing objects of study and research. In explanations that do not intimidate or oversimplify, the author describes the nearly 200 species in 62 genera found in diverse habitats throughout the six New England states. Features that can be seen with a hand lens are emphasized, so that curious naturalists will not need a compound microscope. Color photographs, line drawings, distribution maps, and simple keys assist in the identification of common species, and a helpful glossary of terms is also included. The volume Includes a nice discussion of the New England landscape and its considerable variation in geography and geology.
