The bryophyte flora of Texas has hardly been touched. Striking climatic extremes, with variations in time of extreme cold and rainfall, may cause an abundance of plants in one season and a failure in other years. The vast size of the state makes it difficult to cover favorable terrain at propitious seasons. However, the chief cause of the scarcity of collections may be due to the lack of resident collectors who have been and are interested in bryology.
