About the book

The book will cover several research fields involving Bryophyta and lichenized fungi, based mainly on recent studies. It will involve taxonomy and ecology, in addition to specific studies on extreme environments and economic importance. Aspects related to preservation, rare findings, phytosociology, new study techniques, mapping, and teaching are also welcome. The association with long-term studies with climatic change and alternative work to save endangered and rare species will be also addressed. As well, the important part of the book will be the list of endangered species by country associated with alternatives/suggestions of activities to preserve them and, new laboratory studies to “in vitro” cultivation and culture collections.

The objective is to gather information on the state of the art in these fields, making it possible to attract beginners and other scientists to these fields and the preservation and rational use of endangered species. The possibility of uniting all these fields of knowledge in one book on bryology and lichenology will be unique.

About the editor

Jair Putzke

Universidade Federal do Pampa

The editor studies the taxonomy and ecology of cryptogams mainly in Antarctica (with more than 20 expeditions) and South America, acting in field and laboratory work and in teaching taxonomy. The relationship mosses/lichens with other fungi is also studied. With more than 20 books and 98 scientific articles on those themes the editor is working all the time also to atrack and orientate more scientist in this area. The association of these areas to environmental education is also done in Brazil, leaving new knowledge to the new generation.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
