Media reviews

"This book is a quick source of reference to everyday problems of nomenclature and classification. Libraries of botanical and biological institutions throughout the world should not be without it."
- The New Phytologist

"This book is highly recommended as a must for taxonomists and others who are interested in the generic and family names of vascular plants."
- Baileya

"[...] the more one examines this volume the more it appears as a tremendous compendium of valuable information [...] Authors and editors alike are to be highly congratulated."
- Excerpta Botanica
