Bryophyte Flora of North America




Research associated with creating treatments for the BFNA has resulted in the gathering and analysis of much scientific information, some of which is not directly appropriate in content or format for publication as a volume of the Flora of North America. This list is a partial bibliography of papers published by BFNA authors in conjunction with their research on the Bryophyte Flora of North America up to November 30, 1999.


Authors of the BFNA are invited to add any other papers they may have finished that were generated while working on the BFNA.
