The Lycopods and Ferns of the Drakensberg and Lesotho is the most comprehensive account of the native and naturalised lycopod and fern species occurring in the Drakensberg and Lesotho region. With a history reaching back into the ancient past, ferns and lycopods are the surviving representatives of a formerly rich and exotic world of plants that remains largely unknown to naturalists and botanists alike. Written by a world authority on the group, The Lycopods and Ferns of the Drakensberg and Lesotho is essential reading for all those interested in learning more about these remarkable plants with their fascinating past.
