About this book

Twenty full-colour plates and descriptions of plants appear in this biennial series, which has become a collector's item of the South African flora. This volume is dedicated to Brian J.

Other contributions to this colourful edition include Sclerochiton triacanthus, Ficus sur, Jensenobotrya lossowiana, Millettia grandis, Xysmalobium pedifoetidum, Gladiolus cataractarum, Albuca spiralis and many more.

The botanical art is mainly the work of SANBI resident artist, Gillian Condy; other artists contributing to this issue are Jeanette Loedolff, Elise Buitendag, Vicki Thomas, Angela J. Beaumont and Jenny Hyde-Johnson. There is a guide for authors and artists and an index to species.
