Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The original work by Henry Trimen of the turn of the twentieth century, updated by A.H.G. Alston in the 1930s, has been virtually unavailable for some time, In addition, progress in the science has dictated significant changes and updates. In this revision project sponsored by the U. of Peradeniya and government agencies of Sri Lanka and the Overseas Development Administration of the UK, contributors offer the latest on fern allies such as psilotaceae and isoetaceae, leptosporangiate (aquatic) ferns such as salviniaceae and marsileaceae, and the full range of eusporangiate ferns. The articles come from significant experiences by contributors in 351 fern species, including 58 endemic to the island and an additional 30 species specific to only Sri Lanka and southern India. This includes its own index. Distributed in the US by Enfield.

Synopsis:

Although ferns were not included in Trimen's original five-volume ?A Handbook to the Flora of Ceylon?, they form a significant part of the vascular flora of the island. A good deal of fern research was carried out contemporaneously to, but independently of Trimen's work. Publications, though, were widely scattered throughout the literature or constituted major works in their own right, i.e. that of R.H. Beddome 1863-1883. Therefore, an additional volume, in the new work ?A Revised Handbook to the Flora of Ceylon?, was published in order to provide an accessible taxonomic base for studies on this element of Sri Lankan vegetation.
