Abstract:In June 1991 a nine-man British Bryological Society Expedition collected bryophytes and made ecological observations in many parts of Mulanje Mountain, Malawi. Mulanje Mountain is an isolated member of the Afro-montane archepelago where the rich and distinctive ecosystem is under threat from a range of human activities. Over 4500 specimens were collected and it is clear that they will add many species to the known bryophyte flora of Malawi, as well as providing phytogeographical and ecological data and indicating priority sites for conservation. The present paper, the first in a series reporting the work of the Expedition, describes the objectives, itinerary, logistic arrangements and collecting procedures.
