This county atlas lists the presence or absence of 358 species and varieties of mosses within the 87 counties of Minnesota. The list is based on authenticated herbarium specimens. Individual county checklists are provided. A state map shows the species tally as presently known for each county. The phytogeographic affinity and world distribution of the Minnesota moss flora is analyzed state-wide and for each one of the major biomes in Minnesota. A dictionary with 8-letter acronyms and taxon names with authority, based on the most recent North American checklists, is provided.
