The Intricate Beauty of Sphagnum mosses


** The book has been sold out. We will let you know when a new edition will be available. **

This book is a product of long-term collaboration among plant anatomists, field ecologists and peatland scientists. It serves as a guide for identifying Sphagnum mosses in both field and laboratory. Identification is based on high-quality photographs of moss habitus and microscopic characteristics.

Forty species, typical of more continental parts of northern Europe, but also commonly found elsewhere in the northern hemisphere, are presented.

The book will help bryologists, field ecologists and paleo-ecologists / geologists in their demanding work of Sphagnum identification, and reveal the beauty of the peatlands even in the smaller forms.
