Moss Flora of the Maritime Provinces Robert R. Ireland of the Museum of Natural Sciences in Ottawa created this manual in 1982. It treats the moss flora of the Maritime Provinces of Canada, namely New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
The manual recognizes 381 species, 19 varieties and one form in 135 genera and 43 families. The treatise includes introductory information on structure and life cycle of a moss, collecting and herbarium techniques, collectors of Maritime mosses, identification and methods of study, reference books, and nomenclature and classification. Keys are provided for the genera and species. Each genus is fully described, while the species are briefly described, followed by information on habitat, maritime distribution, range, chromosome number, and relevant remarks. A full plate of black-and-white illustrations is provided for most of the species. A fully illustrated glossary is presented at the back of the book.
Sphagnum ID Eastern Canada An illustrated guide for the macroscopic identification of 36 Sphagnum species found in eastern Canada was produced as part of the Geological Survey of Canada project “Surficial Geology and Environmental Processes in Peatlands”
Identifying Nova Scotia Lichens The suite of lichens in this manual was selected for the purposes of the provincial study on monitoring air pollution based on their tolerance of air pollution, from intolerant to moderate to tolerant. The study focused on lichens found on the native maple species of Nova Scotia.
Consortium of North American Bryophyte Herbaria
The Consortium of North American Bryophyte Herbaria (CNABH) was created to serve as a gateway to distributed data resources of interest to the taxonomic and environmental research community in North America. Through a common web interface, they offer tools to locate, access and work with a variety of data, starting with searching databased herbarium records.
Frullania.org – a Collaborative Research Network
This portal has been created to facilitate the sharing of data, synthesizing existing web resources and databases into a single streamlined resource for experts working on the liverwort genus Frullania.
