This guide is an essential companion for those interested in stewardship and conservation of the region.

The Northern Forest Region lies between the oak forests of the eastern United States and the boreal forests of eastern Canada. It is, collectively, one of the largest and most continuous temperate forests left in the world and, like much of the biosphere, it is at risk.

-Large, easy-to-use format
-Easily characterize and compare over 300 moss species
