Abstract

In popularly written botanical handbooks the Hepaticae are usually not described, the authors chiefly confining their attention to plants of larger growth. The phanerogamous plants receive full notice ; the Ferns and Lycopods may also be described ; but here the line is usually drawn. The Mosses, Hepaticae, Lichens, and Fungi are dismissed with some such remark as that they are distributed throughout the world, and are of no economical importance ; or that they form beautiful transition from low to high organisation, and that they are evascular. Includes extensive illustrative figures
