Peat Mosses of the Southeastern United States by New York Botanical Garden



The New York Botanical Garden Press, Bronx, NY. Any student of Sphagnum is familiar with the existing North American treatments of the genus. There are only three complete floras of the genus in North America (Andrews 1913; Crum 1984; Warnstorf 1911) and several regional moss floras that treat Sphagnum. This volume, treating species found in the southeastern states, pays due tribute to the work that has gone before, and proves a welcome addition to the existing body of Sphagnum floras. It is a publication that can be used by both serious and novice students of the genus, as well as ecologists.

Founded in 1891 and now a National Historic Landmark, it is one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in any city in the United States, distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens, as well as by the scope and excellence of its multidisciplinary exhibitions and programs.

The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is a botanical garden located in the Bronx, New York City. The 250-acre (100 ha) site's verdant landscape supports over one million living plants in extensive collections. The garden has a diversity of tropical, temperate, and desert flora, as well as programming that ranges from exhibitions in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory to festivals on Daffodil Hill. As of 2016, over a million people visit the New York Botanical Garden annually.

New York Botanical Garden Press 2009. Sphagnum, widely known as peat moss, has a wide use in agriculture, horticulture, and floriculture. Threre are few taxonomic treatments of Sphagnum in North America, yet it is a fascinating genus whose species comprise an integral part of nearly all fresh-water wetlands. It is our hope that this treatise will aid those who venture into studying peat moss.

Spend an afternoon at the New York Botanical Garden and you’ll forget you’re in the Bronx. That piece of wilderness he’s referring to is actually a 50-acre forest, virtually untouched since the garden’s founding in 1891.

"Sphagnum, commonly known as peat moss, is widely used in agriculture, horticulture, and floriculture. Living plants are colorful and add much to the beauty of wetlands. It takes little training to recognize the genus, and most of the sections are almostas easy to recognize. Yet they are scarcely noticed by field botanists, and even bryologists tend to avoid them; they have a reputation of being taxonomically difficult but this applies only to a subset. There are few taxonomic treatments of Sphagnum in North America, yet it is a fascinating genus whose species comprise an integral part of nearly all fresh-water wetlands. Almost all significant critical taxonomic characters are microscopic and require dissections and staining, which can, with a little practice, be easily self-taught. Even with a moderate amount of field experience, however, a novice can learn to recognize sections and some species in the field with certainty (although there are many species that even experts cannot distinguish without a compound microscope). All field identifications need to be confirmed microscopically. This volume will aid those who venture into identifying peat mosses."--Publisher's description.
