There has been an expanding curiosity in bryophyte ecology over the last a hundred or so years, at first of a phytosociological nature yet, also, in recent times, of an experimental nature to boot. Early stories of bryophyte groups have resulted in designated investigations into the relationships among the vegetation and their atmosphere. Ecological papers, the big variety of that is evidenced by way of the size of the bibliographies within the next chapters, have seemed in several journals. but, except assessment chapters, by way of H. Gams and P. W. Richards in handbook of Bryology, edited b:; H. Verdoorn in 1932 and chapters in E. V. Watson's constitution and lifetime of Bryophytes, Prem Puri's Bryophytes - A vast point of view and D. H. S. Richardson's The Biology of Mosses, released in 1972,1973 and 1981 respectively, no normal bills of bryophyte ecology were released. even though the Bryophyta is a comparatively small department of crops, with among 14000 and 21000 species the curiosity that they have got aroused is out of all share to the scale both of the vegetation or of the department. it truly is obvious, even if, that regardless of their relative insigni­ ficance they play a major ecological function, specifically in severe environments and, when it comes to bryophytes in tropical cloud forests and of Sphagnum, may also be a dominant think about the ecology of the world concerned.
