New copy, but a slight bump/crease to the margin of the page edges. Well illustrated, small 8vo, pp 91, paperback, a very good copy . Mosses and liverworts (bryophytes) are one of the most characteristic phenomena of the tropical montane rain forest. On Mount Kinabalu they exhibit the typical aspect of the "mossy forest", hanging from trees and carpeting the ground and hillsides along the summit trail. This booklet provides basic information on mosses and liverworts with special reference to the species occurring in Kinabalu Park, particularly the common species at Poring Hot Springs, the trails around the Park Headquarters and along the summit trail. The ecology, geography and uses of mosses and liverworts are also covered in this simple booklet. Illustrations include colour photographs and ink drawings. A checklist of the bryophytes of Mount Kinabalu is included for reference.
