Summary
North Carolina is home to 66 genera and 195 species of liverworts--small, mosslike plants occupying moist microhabitats that form an inconspicuous part of the vegetation. Marie L. Hicks's Guide to the Liverworts of North Carolina provides the first complete field guide to the hepatic flora in North Carolina, from the mountain counties to the piedmont and the coastal plain. The volume offers a key to genera, species descriptions, distribution maps, a glossary, and 120 original drawings of the liverworts as they appear in North Carolina. The flattened plant body of liverworts, which distinguishes them from mosses, enables them to live close to the substrate where water can be absorbed. Their ability to absorb moisture slows runoff and provides an environment for the germination of other plant seeds, thus establishing the importance of liverworts within the ecosystem. North Carolina's varied physiography creates a diversity of flora, ranging from boreal plants in the mountains to subtropical plants in the coastal plain. Collections of hepatics in North Carolina have been sporadic over the years, and knowledge of their distribution within the state has accumulated gradually. Guide to the Liverworts of North Carolina builds upon earlier field studies, including those of Hugo L. Blomquist and R. M. Schuster, to provide keys and illustrations to aid identification. This important, comprehensive field guide will also be useful in states adjoining North Carolina and will be of interest to all who wish to identify local liverworts
