To: Indian...@yahoogroups.com


Dear all,

After seven years of studying pteridophytes in Taiwan I succeeded in completing my book, a not for profit project. It introduces a large variety of 729 taxa on this rather small island.

As this forum is not only addressing the Indian subcontinent, but as well other neighbouring regions, I would like to share this information with all of you. From past discussions, literature study of Drs. Fraser-Jenkins and Khullar, I can see an interesting overlap of both floras.

Below are some links concerning the book. Furthermore, I will attach a checklist of accepted pteridophyte taxa (containing two more taxa which have been added past the editorial deadline for the book: Tectaria dubia and Cyrtogonellum caducum).

Feel free to address questions and comments.

Ralf Knapp
