Bryophyte Flora of North America

List of Major Regional Floras and Checklists

Contributors should account for the names of all relevant species, subspecies, and varieties accepted in any of the following works. If any of these names are not to be accepted for Flora of North America, they should appear in synonymy or in discussion. Publications with highlighted titles are links to a list of species accepted in that treatment.

NOTE: Lists of states, provinces and sometimes counties, with publication citations, are available for mosses and in part for hepatics from Marshall Crosby (Marshall.Crosby@mobot.org).
