Bryonet is an email discussion and news group sponsored by IAB, open to anyone who is interested with no charge. Bryonet is a managed list. All messages come to the owner/manager and are forwarded to the list. The intent of the list is to provide good international discussions and a forum in which teachers, ecologists, bryologists and anyone interested can get questions about bryophytes answered. Since much of bryophyte literature is imbedded in studies of a more general nature, it is often difficult to find answers to ecological, physiological, and other questions.  It is appropriate to ask bryological questions, send news items of interest to bryologists, announce bryological meetings and forays, announce publications of interest to bryologists, or ask for help in locating a bryologist or bryological collections. Teachers wanting information on bryophytes are encouraged to bring their questions to the list.

Send messages to <> (letter l, not number 1). Note that if you reply, replies go to the entire list, not just the sender, so
do not send personal messages by replying to a Bryonet message. Please include your email address in the body of the message if you want a
response - some folks will want to respond privately.
