"Until recently, Ascension's bryophyte flora has received little attention. However, thanks to the efforts of the authors and their infectious enthusiasm for this often-overlooked group, researchers, conservation practitioners and interested individuals now have an invaluable resource to carry with them into the field. We would urge everyone to take the time to study these tiny plants and see how many you can recognise – you won't regret it!" – Dr Nicola Weber, Head of Conservation & Dr Sam Weber, Chief Scientific Officer, Ascension Island Government Conservation Department.
