This book will enrich the readers theoretical knowledge about the fundamental aspects of bryology. There is a great significance of bryophytes in land plant evolution, water retention, prevention of soil erosion, nutrient cycling, nitrogen fixation and pollution monitoring. Considering this, the authors found it necessary to provide a basic guideline to the students to study the bryoflora. The present manual for bryophytes will provide practical guidelines for collection and recording of bryophytes, methodologies for studying it's morphology, morphometry and internal structure, modern approach to bryophytes systematics and characterization of genera, taxonomic importance of spore ornamentation as revealed by the Scanning Electron Microscopy, significance of bryophyte conservation and basic methods of in vitro study. Please note: Taylor & Francis does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

This reference provides information about recent trends in bryology in parts of India, tropical rainforests and arctic regions. Bryophytes are the earliest land plants and quite fascinating in their overall diversity. All through its history, bryological study has contributed considerably to the field of plant sciences, for instance, the discovery of sex chromosomes in plants. The study of bryophytes is fundamental to our understanding of land plant evolution, and the latest progress in molecular phylogenetics and genomics have given researchers a clear depiction of land colonization of plants and subsequent terrestrial progression. Ecologically, the importance of bryophytes for the participation in biogeochemical cycles, in particular carbon cycle is now appreciated. Further, there has been an escalating interest in the conservation biology of bryophytes. The contributors have put forward holistic information regarding current research scenario of bryology in a range of environments to readers learning about research in applied bryology. The compilation of reviews presents reported findings related to various aspects of the subject, such as, conservation, diversity, tissue culture, bio-monitoring, computational bryology, molecular bryology, and species. Botanists and bryologists will receive updated information that will be valuable for their research work. The reader-friendly text is also suitable for beginners in applied plant science. Recent Advances in Botanical Science provides updated research and reviews on topics related to plant biology, genetics, taxonomy and ecology. The series is a useful resource for readers interested in applied plant science.

The present book ' practical manual for bryophytes and pteridophytes has been written as an elementary text for biology graduates taking bryophytes and pteridophytes as compulsory course, not as a text book for researcher. Beginning with simple classification and salient features of different groups of cryptograms plants, it deals with important aspects of representative genus of bryophytes and pteridophytes. Students can easily follow and be benefited from manual while performing lab activities. Topics on preparation of herbarium and glossary of terms are attraction of book. Text is well supported by relevant diagrams also. At the end of each chapter relevant questions are given for further discussion on the subject.
