- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after August 19, 2021
This book will enrich the readers theoretical knowledge about the fundamental aspects of bryology. There is a great significance of bryophytes in land plant evolution, water retention, prevention of soil erosion, nutrient cycling, nitrogen fixation and pollution monitoring. Considering this, the authors found it necessary to provide a basic guideline to the students to study the bryoflora.
The present manual for bryophytes will provide practical guidelines for collection and recording of bryophytes, methodologies for studying it's morphology, morphometry and internal structure, modern approach to bryophytes systematics and characterization of genera, taxonomic importance of spore ornamentation as revealed by the Scanning Electron Microscopy, significance of bryophyte conservation and basic methods of in vitro study.
