Most of such old floras are available on Biodiversity Library and I can see they have used the same.
Please feel free to ask me for links of any old books, you never know, I might be having them in my huge personal library. I have nearly 3300+ references on my computer plus my articles, these don’t include most of the free online old books and books for which I have hard copies.
But, while asking, please be specific to what you need. I got an email once to send all orchid references to one orchid expert in India, I REFUSED.
I must add that this IBIS website looks like a good effort to bring lot of information at one place and they have been very smartly using other website links. INTERESTING.
Thanks, … We generally require this sparingly and that too for a particular species.
Advantage here is that we can quickly search and afterwards- can copy and paste, in our discussions.
But problem is that it was not working for a long time. Hope IBIS Flora link keeps working in future.
Just WONDERFUL !!!!!!!
I can’t thank You enough !!!
I have all seven volumes of FBI downloaded in 2010, easy to use, I refer to them quite often for comparison, plus Bailey Manual, Fl. Simlensis.
