Bryophyte Flora of Switzerland [Bryo CH]

The Swiss bryophyte flora, with its 1400 species, is one of the richest, as well as one of the most representative floras in Europe. A project on the Bryophyte Flora of Switzerland is currently underway in Zürich as part of the Nationale Inventar der Schweizer Moosflora (NISM) activities. Contributions will be made to this project in the Dicranaceae and by the donation of data on the bryophytes of Geneva to the NISM database. This programme unites floristic work on the Dicranaceae in Switzerland with the exploration of Romandie and, in particular, of the canton of Geneva. The Inventory of the hepatics and mosses of Geneva (2005-2008) and the current Red List project provide a good foundation on which to build on the understanding of the bryophytes that were historically and are currently present in the canton.

The Swiss bryophyte flora is one of the richest in Europe and it is also perhaps the most representative of the European flora's as a whole due to the topographical relief and diverse ecological conditions found in the country. The compilation of the Bryophyte Flora of Switzerland is being done on a collaborative basis between the NISM team, hosted by the University of Zürich, and its diverse collaborators. Numerous national and international experts will contribute to the development of the project by providing taxonomic treatments for the flora. With around 1400 species of bryophytes known for Switzerland much work on the taxon descriptions and the species ecology - distribution sections will be needed.
