The first of three volumes covering all species of mosses (yes, mosses) found in the Nordic lands. This one describes 262 species of the following orders: Buxbaumiales, Diphysciales, Timmiales, Encalyptales, Funariales, Bryoxiphiales, Grimmiales, Archidiales, Diacranales. Extremely boring, despite illustrations and photos in color. Mostly the green color, actually. But sure, I was shocked to realize that there are about 1,000 species of moss just in Sweden. I mean, they all look the same to me. But then, due to the super-abundant amount of mosquitoes, gnats, spiders, no-see-ums, no-want-ums, no-patience-with-ums, I usually never take a closer look! I assume these latter critters will be dealt with in future volumes of this mother lode of all cyclopedias, and then some?
