Media reviews

"[...]Indubitably this work is a remarkable contribution to our understanding and appreciation of the Taiwanese pteridoflora. Its faults are few, most significantly the outdated classification of families and genera, plus the lack of detailed locality information below the county level. In summary, 'Ferns and fern allies of Taiwan' is a comprehensive as well as a visually rich and beautiful synopsis of Taiwanese pteridophytes. This flora serves both as an invaluable reference source and as a magnificent presentation for all persons appreciating the diversity of plants."
