Mexican mosses: a flora of transition in the Americas
AbstractThe Mexican moss flora, with about 967 species and varieties, is essentially neotropical in character, but it also contains numerous boreal, southern and widely distributed taxa; their world and local ranges suggest that Mexico is the site of convergence of tropical and temperate floras that segregate altitudinally along the mountains and are separated latitudinally by the Neovolcanic Belt. The southern part of the country contains mostly tropical taxa whose distribution may extend northward beyond 20°N along the coastal plains.
