Its author, Jānis Rukšāns, Dr Honoris Causa from the Latvian Academy of Sciences, grows thousands of crocuses. An internationally renowned expert on crocuses, he studied them extensively in their natural habitat, obtained many hybrids as a crocus breeder, and authored several books on bulbous plants and crocuses. In this monumental work he exhaustively and in much detail describes the 235 species of crocus currently listed.
