Phillips, R., 1980

Grasses, Ferns, Mosses and Lichens of Great Britain and Ireland

A photographic guide illustrating these less popular groups of "plants".

The main content illustrates Grasses (including Sedges, Rushes and Reedmace), Ferns (including Clubmosses, Quillworts and Horsetails), for which the coverage is reasonably complete.

Mosses (including Liverworts) and Lichens are given short treatments with only a few species illustrated.

Coverage Fairly complete for Grasses and Ferns, but these are small groups. With nearly two thousand species each in Mosses and Lichens, only a selection of the most common or characteristic are shown.
Illustrations Colour photographs.
