The volume comprises 20 families of ferns and lycopods, including such important groups as tree ferns, filmy ferns, and polypods. The treatments include keys, drawings of the taxa, extensive notes on nomenclature, synonymy, and typification, as well as brief statements of distribution and habitats.
