AbstractThe Flora of Australia started in 1981 and since then 8 volumes came out, including some 70 families. Before all we have to congratulate the editors with this achievement and we express our hope that it will be possible to go on like this.
Eight volumes provide the possibility for a more general evaluation. First of all, just turning over the leaves of these volumes, one is struck by the balanced design, the clear typography, the amount of illustrations. However, on further consideration one feels some disappointment. Only once in a hundred years a Flora of Australia appears to be written, and accordingly it should be as good as possible. It is a pity then if you find too often mistakes, often unnecessary ones, and inaccuracies.
