The article provides information on species composition of mosses that grow in a natural forest environment. The territory of the pine forest is a part of the city forests of Kemerovo. It is a unique natural area with a high recreational potential. A list of bryophytes is compiled. It includes 36 species belonging to 25 genera and 16 families. Information about each moss species which indicates their systematic position, nature of substrate, and distribution by ecological groups is provided. The results of the studies indicate that the largest number of species contain the following families: Brachytheciaceae (9), Mniaceae (5), Pylaisiaceae (4), Bryaceae (3). They represent 58 % of total brioflora of the study area. The largest genus is the Plagiomnum genus. The following representatives of bryophytes dominated on the territory of the forest: Amblystegium serpens, Brachythecium salebrosum, Plagiomnium cuspidatum, Sanionia uncinata, Sciuro-hypnum oedipodium, Ceratodon purpureus. The greatest number of species of epiphytic-epixialical group was found on tree trunks (elder, birch, apple tree, pine, bird cherry, maple) and windfall trees. This is 86 % of total forest land brioflora composition. Brioflora composition of the studied territory is referred to a typical boreal zone. Results of research can be used for monitoring of natural ecosystems.
