Search All Bryophytes

Specimens in the families of hepatics and mosses listed below have been catalogued for this project. Click on a family name to see a list of names of genera and species in the family. Click on a genus or species name to see a list of detailed specimen records.

Clicking on a family name below initiates a search of the database that generates the list of taxa dynamically. This will take some time for those families with many records (i.e., hundreds or thousands). In general, the search time in seconds can be estimated by dividing the number of records in a family by ten. For example, generating a checklist of the Frullaniaceae, a family with 3500 records in the catalog, will take approximately 350 seconds (3500 / 10), or about 6 minutes.
