About the book: 

This comprehensive guide to the ferns of Southern Africa (covering South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana and Namibia) throws new light on a category of plants that’s little-described or featured. 

User-friendly and accessible, it will enable quick and sure identification of all 315 ferns known to occur in the region. 

The book features: A double-page spread per species with a full plate of multiple photographs, including close-ups; informative line drawings where necessary; detailed but clear descriptions; tables that highlight differences between similar-looking species; distribution maps based on years of intensive fieldwork; identification keys to families, genera and species. In compiling this volume, the authors travelled extensively, even finding several new species of ferns. They are all treated in this guide – some described here for the first time. 

Ferns of Southern Africa will become the standard reference book on local ferns, and will likely become sought-after Africana.
