Ferns, Mossses and Lichens of Britain, Northern & Central Europe

Primarily a set of good quality colour photographs of ferns, mosses and lichens. The ferns are well covered, but coverage is restricted to common and easily recorgnised species in the other groups. Nevertheless this useful work contains a goodly number of photographs.

Keys (using hand lens features) to the illustrated genera, and some species, are included.
