A Checklist of Mosses lists 12,800 recognized species in 901 genera, including 42 synonymous genera with species that have not been transferred to the accepted genus. Each listed species is qualified using a four-level ranking system that indicates our level of knowledge about the species. Each in the highest three levels is supported by at least one citation from a bibliography of 1,756 references published since 1962, the closing date for the last comprehensive list of mosses, Index Muscorum. The Checklist, which is updated regularly (last update version February 2000), will be available on the web (the address is in the Introduction), and xerographic, strip-bound copies, about 300 pages, may be obtained, at cost plus shipping ($20.00), from the authors.
