MFR Moss Flora of Russia project

Russian version The project is aimed to prepare the Moss Flora of Russia,
with descriptions and keys to identification, and also illustration of all species,
data on their habitats and distribution. 


Flora is mostly in Russian, but keys in English are given for all taxa, with key notes on each species.

Taxonomic treatments of genera in already printed volumes comprise these volumes (see below)

Preliminary taxonomic treatments for subsequent volumes are also available.
Please consider that they can be corrected and revised before the final publication
