Just Published! Flora of the Guianas - Bryophytes fascicle 2, Musci IV
In 1964, botanist Peter Florschütz published the first Moss Flora as a part of the Flora of Suriname (Vol. VI, part I, Musci), based on collections of Florschütz and his wife Jeanne in the period 1950-'51. At that time only few moss collections existed from the Guiana Shield. When Florschütz suddenly died in 1976, his wife continued his work. This resulted in the second Moss chapter in the Flora of Suriname (Vol. VI, part I, Musci II, Neckeraceae, Hookeriaceae, and Plagiotheciaceae.) and in 1996 in the Flora of the Guianas (Series C, Musci III, Leucomiaceae, Thuidiaceae, Sematophyllaceae en Hypnaceae’. But the works was not yet finished. Jeanne continued to collect mosses in the Guianas in the 1980s and 1990s, and together with other collections this resulted in 83 extra species and 4 varieties for the Guianas. These are now published, illustrated and bundled with earlier work in the latest publication of the Flora of the Guianas Series C: Bryophytes fascicle 2, Musci IV. The magnum opus of Jeanne Florschütz.
