This 1998 volume is a stimulating review of the state of research in contemporary oceanic island plant biology.
' ... the book provides pleasant and instructive reading to all interested in island biogeography.' Optima ' ... this is a useful book, bringing together a lot of information on many aspects of island biogeography.' Peter Hovenkamp, Blumea ' ... a worthy addition to the literature on plant evolution on islands ... ideal for graduate students setting out to discover new and exciting patterns of variation on islands.' Heredity ' ... a valuable addition to the literature ...' Phil Garnock-Jones, Plant Systematics & Evolution
