A Tribute to Janice Glime—A Stalwart Contributor to Bryology

NANCY SLACK, DALE H. VITT

Abstract


We are very happy to dedicate this book to Janice M. Glime, Professor Emerita at Michigan Technological University.  Her name is probably familiar to more bryologists around the world that any other.  This is largely a result of her management (since 1996) of Bryonet (bryonet-L@mtu.edu), a wonderful bryophyte email discussion and news blog.  Under Janice’s management, Bryonet subscribers grew from about 170 in 1996 to 1,379 members as of March 2017 (http://iab-bryologists-website.blogspot.com/p/past.html).  Bryonet was originally established by Swedish bryologist Gillis Een in 1991 and then managed by Jan-Peter Frahm from 1991–1996.  Under Janice’s management, Bryonet has flourished and provides a key resource to graduate students and biologists from many continents, allowing persons to find sources, identify specimens, have questions answered, and have serious conversations on a variety of questions and methods related to bryophytes.  She was also a long-time IAB Council member and its president from 2005–2009.  In addition, Janice (pronounced Janeece) has been and continues to compose a comprehensive treatise on Bryophyte Ecology, (digitalcommons.mtu.edu/bryophyte-ecology/).  Details are updated regularly with new information that anyone can download.  This is the only textbook-style treatment that is available for beginning classes in bryology and thanks to Janice is available free on the internet.
