Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The International Association of Bryologists, established in 1969, is a professional association promoting bryology globally for both amateurs and professionals. IAB was established at the XI International Botanical Congress in Seattle, Washington, with the goal of increasing cooperation between professional and amateur biologists throughout the world. The organization sponsors conferences and meetings relating to bryology, and sponsors the publication of The Bryological Times and Advances of Bryology. Together with the International Union for Conservation of Nature, they compiled the first red list of endangered bryophytes in 1997. The idea of founding an international organization with the purpose of promoting worldwide cooperation and communication among bryologists had been long in the mind of bryologists in Europe and North America during the last century. It became a topic of informal discussion at the Pacific Science Congress in Tokyo in 1966, where a small group of bryologists met spontaneously to see what could be done to pursue the idea.show more
