New book about Taiwanese pteridophytes has relevance for Indian fern scientists :  

In an article in the Indian Fern Journal Vol. 29 (Knapp, R. 2012. Affinities of Indian and Taiwanese pteridofloras. Indian Fern J. 29: 202-237) I demonstrated that there is a considerable overlapping of fern floras for Taiwan and India: a 47% of Taiwan’s 747 pteridophyte taxa can be found in the Indian subcontinent with its ca. 1100 taxa.

Ferns and Fern allies of Taiwan – Supplement (2013)
