|Abstract||This new volume of the Handbook of the Flora of Ceylon deals with: Acanthaceae by L.H. Cramer; Rubiaceae by C.E. Ridsdale; Sapindaceae by B.M. Wadhwa & Willem Meijer. Each treatment includes: Family description, keys to the genera and species, and with the taxa: accepted name, synonym(s), description, and notes on distribution, ecology, and specimens seen. On the last page a list of new names is given. However, there are no indices to scientific names and specimens.|
The taxonomy of the treated genera and species seems to be up to date. Only a few minor errors have been noted. A few illustrations, especially of key characters, would have been helpful. However, this is a useful book on the flora of Sri Lanka. It should go to the bookshelves of those interested in the flora of that island.
