The lycopods and ferns of the Drakensberg and Lesotho is the most comprehensive account of the native and naturalised lycopod and fern species occurring in the Drakensberg and Lesotho region.
  • Introductory chapters provide insights into the ecology, structure and classification of living ferns and lycopods and their extinct relatives.
  • The chapter on species description provide detailed descriptions, distribution maps and full colour illustrations for all 117 species recorded in the region.
  • Close-up photographs of spores and frond details aid the critical identification of each species.
With a history reaching back into the ancient past, ferns and lycopods are the surviving representatives of a formerly rich and exotic world of plants that remains largely unknown to naturalists and botanists alike.

Written by a world authority on the group, this book is essential reading for all those interested in learning more about these remarkable plants with their fascinating past.
