View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Covering some 221 taxa of native and naturalized ferns and fern allies of Hawai'i, this manual provides information on habitat, elevational range, and island distribution following the descriptions of species and infraspecific taxa. Includes technical details for the botanist but is aimed at a general audience, with descriptions limited in most cases to characteristics that can be seen with the naked eye or a 10x hand lens. Designed to help the reader identify Hawaiian ferns, the generic descriptions cover the members of the species in the genera as found in Hawai'i and will, in some cases, be inadequate to describe the genus worldwide. B&w illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
