This classic book made a substantial and original contribution to the
knowledge of the mosses of Utah and contiguous states. It treats 256
species in 77 genera and 18 families, a large proportion of which were

skillful illustrations form one of the finest features of this book.
"Mosses: Utah and the West" was first published in 1973 by Brigham

illustrations, descriptions and information on geographical

Utah, Flowers specialized in bryology and phycology and was president
