Tennessee’s bryophyte flora ranks among the richest and best-known in this country. Many references in the literature point to reports made for this state by competent observers. As one would expect, they gathered their material mainly in those sections of Tennessee where the bryophyte flora showed its most varied display. Large portions of the state were thus omitted from their field work and publications. As far as the writer knows, the list presented here is the first to give distributional data on bryophytes occurring in Tennessee on a state-wide basis.
