Abstract/Summary

Anthony John Edwin (Tony) Smith was born on 8 May 1935 at Bath, Somerset and died in hospital at Rhyl, Denbighshire, 27 November 2012. He was one of the leading bryologists of the twentieth century having joined the British Bryological Society (BBS) in 1956 and made an Honorary Member in 1994. He was Editor of Journal of Bryology from 1978 to 1992 and instrumental in setting up the Society’s Bryophyte Mapping Scheme in 1960 which culminated in the publication of the Atlas (Hill et al., 1991, 1992, 1994). He published The moss flora of Britain and Ireland (Smith, 1978a) with a second edition and reprint (Smith, 2004, 2006) as well as The liverworts of Britain and Ireland (Smith, 1990). His moss flora and the atlas stand as lasting memorials to his life which contributed greatly to both British and European bryology.
