Dutch Bryological and Lichenological Society

BLWG, founded in 1946, is a society with about 400 members (50 from abroad), which are interested in bryophytes and lichens. BLWG organizes activities for members and public, including field trips, weekends and symposia.

Online resources

Buxbaumiella is issued three times a year. Buxbaumiella contains reports of field trips (also abroad), notes on taxonomical groups pertinent to the Netherlands and recent literature. The journal is in Dutch, but the editors welcome contributions in English. An English summary is provided for all articles. You may contact editor-in-chief Dick Kerkhof for more information. Issues older than three years can be downloaded as pdf from the Buxbaumiella page.

In co-operation with the Nordic Bryological Society and the Oikos Editorial Office, BLWG publishes the bryological and lichenological Open Access journal Lindbergia (older issues via JStor).
