Bruch collaborated with Wilhelm Philippe Schimper (1808–1880) on the epic Bryologia europaea, a six-volume work on European bryology. Also, he described a number of species from the moss genus Orthotrichum that received valid publication (Bruch ex Brid.) from Swiss bryologist Samuel Elisée Bridel-Brideri (1761–1828). The genus Bruchia from the family Bruchiaceae is named in his honor.
Bruch died on his birthday at the age of 66.
