A Field Museum exclusive!
The sixth and last volume, all by Field Museum Research Associate Rudolf Schuster, treats the liverworts and hornworts of eastern North America. It contains comprehensive coverage of all of the thalloid (non leafy) groups of liverworts and all of the hornworts, and continues the tradition established in prior volumes dealing with these interesting plants as living entities. The volume contains detailed taxonomic accounts and evaluations, and the various taxonomic categories are dealt with in terms of their ecology, distribution and reproductive methodologies, all topics that reflect the author's concern with the organisms as living entities.
The volume is illustrated with over 140 superlative plates that serve to fully complement the written text.
Published in 1992, this incomparable volume has long been unavailable.
Brand new, sealed in the original shrink wrap.
