The first review dealing with chemical constituents of the Marchantiophyta (liverworts) appeared in this series as Volume 42 in 1982. A second one was issued as Volume 65 in 1995. These included the chemical constituents, their biological activity and chemosystematics not only of the Marchantiophyta, but also of the Bryophyta (mosses) and the Anthocerotae (hornworts). In this volume, several hundred additional new compounds have been isolated from bryophytes and their structures elucidated.
