Working to save the world's most endangered mosses, liverworts and hornworts

Welcome

Welcome to the IUCN Species Survival Commission Bryophyte Specialist Group website, kindly housed by the Swedish Species Information Centre.

We are a branch of the Species Survival Commisssion of the IUCN - The World Conservation Union, the world's oldest and largest international conservation organization.

One of the primary missions of the Bryophyte Specialist Group (BSG) is to establish liaisons with people working in countries where endangered bryophytes occur. Currently, we have members in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America and North America.

What's on...

We are now updating the IUCN World Red List...
