Phytomorphology, or “plant morphology,” should, by all rights, include “plants” other than angiosperms, but often these plants are neglected, ignored, or forgotten. This may be due to a variety of causes -- lack of interest, general paucity of funding and even, perhaps, the “hegemony” of angiosperm researchers. We at PHYTOMORPHOLOGY wish to remind researchers of taxa other than flowering plants that we remain intensely interested in the structure and function of these taxa--whether the polyphyletic “algae” and “fungi,” green plants (including green algae), and land plants -- Bryophyta, Marchantiophyta, Anthocerophyta, Lycophyta, Pteridophyta, Sphenophyta, and Gymnosperms.

We invite contributions on all aspects of the biology of these groups, with the possibility of bringing out a special issue of Volume 67 entirely devoted to these plants. We urge you to place your findings in a broad context so as to interest as wide a readership as possible.

We look forward to your submissions. Please do read the instructions to contributers, both in this issue and online (
