Abstract

The pioneer contributions included a sign for Iraqi Bryoflora were those of (Juratzka & Milde) and Schiffner published at the end of the 19th century i.e. (1870 & 1897) respectively. However, throughout the whole next century, the 20th, only few papers, by different authors, have been published separately. They are Schiffner (1913); Handel-Mazzetti (1914); Froelich (1959); Vondracek (1962 & 1965); Agnew &Townsend (1970); Agnew ( 1973 ) ; Agnew & Vondracek (1975); Long (1979); Al-Ni’ma (1994). The most comprehensive work among them was the “Moss Flora of Iraq” by Agnew & Vondracek (1975). It included a description of 54 genera and 145 species with an identification key in addition to notes on the climate, topography and soil of the country. This flora is of a great scientific value. It forms a major basic source of information not only about Iraq flora but for adjacent regions also. Some of these researchers deposited their specimen as follows: Agnew in Baghdad University Herbarium and British Museum, Vondracek in Baghdad University Herbarium, Handle-Mazzetti at Natural History Museum in Vienna and Al-Ni’ma in the Herbarium of the College of Science, Mosul University. In the end of the 20th century, the idea has come ot unify the previously recorded taxa in a single issue to be available for the next generation in the beginning of the new century.
