The Student's Handbook of British Hepatics


    THE value of an accurate systematic treatise in stimulating interest in a group is evidenced in the call within a comparatively short time for new editions. Lister's “Mycetozoa,” Dixon's “Mosses,” and Lorrain Smith's “Lichens” are familiar examples, and to these have now been added Macvicar's “Hepaticse.” The accurate descriptions, useful keys, and excellent illustrations for every species at once made the work invaluable to students, and after fourteen years the stock has been exhausted. The new edition includes only minor changes; a few additional species, changes in rank of certain forms, and a full glossary being the most important.
