Flora of New Zealand Volume II

L B Moore & E Edgar

Covers only indigenous monocotyledon families except Gramineae (grasses), the main text being a continuation from Volume I. A great many nomenclatural types were examined and these and original localities are quoted for almost all species mentioned. Synonymies and bibliographic references are given.

The text figures are by Nancy M Adams and J Bruce Irwin. Chromosome numbers published up to the end of 1968 are listed for indigenous conifers, dicotyledons, and monocotyledons. A chronological enumeration amplifies and continues to the end of 1968 the Annals of Taxonomic Research, covering New Zealand Tracheophyta in general, not monocotyledons alone. Corrigenda (but not addenda) to Volume I complete this volume.
