About the book
This book aims to bring together the most recent information on bryophytes, including taxonomy, ecology, and the effects of climate change on the group. The objective is to gather as much information as possible from different continents, aiming to create a source of general and specialized consultation on the topics. Gather what has already been done, predict what would need to be studied to complete regional lists, and associate ecological aspects, including phytosociological and communities studies. How climate change affects biodiversity is one of the important topics as it is current for such a sensitive group. The proposition of revisions for little-studied groups and the proposition of practical keys for identification, the new techniques of taxonomic and ecological study and the availability of bryologists around the globe. What is the state of the art in research with the group and what the future will be like, are part of the answers that the different chapters will work on.
