Among the groups of plants hitherto neglected by Iowa botanists, the liverworts are by no means the least interesting. A few of the large thalloid species have long been familiar objects to botanists working in other fields, but the general lack of economic importance of the group, and the habits and small size of most of the species, no doubt account for the fact that they have attracted less attention than they deserve.
