This is the current draft of “Guide to Oregon Liverworts © 2012.” It provides keys for the identification of all liverworts known to have been found in Oregon as of June, 2012. It contains 428 HTML text files and a subfolder with over 700 images, so that almost all the couplets are illustrated and most of the species pages have multiple images. These illustrations focus on microscope views; many of the photomicrographs are stacked images. Whenever possible, fresh material was used for photography so what is illustrated here is what a field botanist sees under his or her microscope. The keys work using your favorite web browser. See the “Key to Hornworts” and “Key to Racomitrium” under the ID Keys tab of this website for examples of this kind of HTML key. This “Guide” is shipped on CD; it can be downloaded to your computer’s hard drive for most efficient reading. Shipping costs included in the price. This does not run properly on Linux systems at this time. Update coming.
People who purchase this CD may get an update at any time by by submitting $10. A new CD will be mailed with the current version at that date. This offer is good indefinitely. Note: recent price reduction!!
This is a guide to hornworts of our state, “Hornworts of Oregon.” It is an HTML document designed to be used by reading with an internet browser on a computer. It is available on CD for those who have trouble with the version posted on the web or would prefer to have the key located on the hard drive of their computer. It covers the seven species of hornworts found in Oregon: four of Phaeoceros, two of Anthoceros, and one Phymatoceros.
I have converted the text, with thumbnail illustrations, to a MS Word document that can be printed out at the users desired quality. For anybody who would rather use a pdf file, I have saved the document in this format, also, but it is a somewhat larger file.
I have prepared an archival version of the text document on cotton content paper, with the CD in a back pocket, for libraries and people wanting the “official” publication with hardcopy. It costs US $25, post paid anywhere in the world.
The CD only is $10, also postpaid world wide. It has both the primary HTML version as well as the .doc and .pdf files.
