Contributions toward a Bryoflora of California II.
A Key to the Mosses


Daniel H. Norris and James R. Shevock
Madroño 51(2): 133-269. 2004

The keys include 731 mosses known to occur in the Pacific States of Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and California. In addition these keys also include mosses recorded from Baja California, Norte, Mexico. Field notes and identification observations are provided for each of the 200 genera covered by these keys.


Contributions toward a Bryoflora of California III.
Keys and Annotated Species Catalogue for Liverworts and Hornworts


William T. Doyle and Raymond E. Stotler
Madroño 53(2): 89-197. 2006

Part III is similar to the catalogue and key to the mosses; however, this work has the added feature of diagnostic narratives to separate species beyond the use of the keys. The work provides keys and identification narratives for the 150 liverworts and hornworts documented for California. Although written for California, it will be extremely useful for Nevada and southern Oregon.There are no liverworts or hornworts known from Nevada that are not in this work.
