The new book Mosses of the Northern Forest: A Photographic Guide (Cornell University Press, 2021) by Jerry Jenkins is an essential companion for those interested in stewardship and conservation of the Northern Forest Region.
The Northern Forest Region lies between the oak forests of the eastern United States and the boreal forests of eastern Canada. It is, collectively, one of the largest and most continuous temperate forests left in the world and, like much of the biosphere, it is at risk.
With high-definition composite images, ecological diagrams, habitat keys, and a visual glossary, this unique guide illustrates over 300 moss species of the Northern Forest.
The guide includes high resolution studio images, descriptions, diagnoses, ecological maps, and diagrams and icons showing microscopic features, growth forms, and habitats.
