In this revised, expanded edition of a comprehensive guide to the ferns of southern Africa, readers will find identification easily thanks to a key process and improved organization. A two-page spread for each species contains details on the derivation of each name, a description of the species, and a chart that explains differences with comparable species. The text includes exceptionally clear photographs of each plant and its habitat, as well as a locator map providing some sense of a given plant’s distribution in the region.
