Abstract

Very few people seem to be familiar with liverworts, or even aware that they exist. It seems in this age of erosion and soil conservation that we should be more conscious of nature's safeguards against the former. In addition, liverworts make fine material for study, and are usually available within a short distance of any college or high school. The Iowa Wesleyan College Herbarium lacked liverworts. This preliminary study was started to add liverworts to the herbarium. Dr. Conard of Grinnell College, in his report on "Bryophyta of Iowa" (The Bryologist, Vol. 48, page 70), has record of only two Hepaticae, Frullania eboracensis and Porella platyphylloidea, being reported from Henry County.
