The nine first volumes of the INDEX HEPATICARUM (A - Leujeunea + Plagiochila) were compiled by Dr. C.E.B. Bonner, two of which were edited by H. Bischler + D. Lamy after Dr. Bonner's death on Aug. 9, 1976. Dr. Bonner's work was mainly based on Stephani's SPECIES HEPATICARUM and bryologists owe him deep gratitude for having embarked on such a gigantic task on his own.
In view of the primary importance of this Index, the International Association of Bryologists took over the patronage of its completion.
The INDEX HEPATICARUM is an index of effectively published epithets. Generic names without validly published epithets are not recorded in the Index.
