A new field guide to mosses and liverworts has just been published by the British Bryological Society, with new keys, photos and illustrations. I haven't seen it yet, but people who have tell me it looks very good, and promises to make mosses and liverworts more accessible - as the BBS says "The want of a field guide has for many years greatly hindered further spread of interest in British and Irish field bryology. By filling this gap in the market, the guide will make a group that has largely been the realm of specialists into an accessible and popular interest for naturalists, reaching far beyond the current pool of bryologists, and into the wider community of naturalists beyond."
