From the Publisher"This volume represents a reasonable balance of up-to-date general reviews and interesting case studies on island floras. We must congratulate the editors and authors. The Biology of Island Floraswill be of great value to many botanists, ecologists, and biogeographers. Moreover, it also has much to offer to a broader audience of conservation biologists and managers of protected areas on islands."
Marcel Rejmanek, University of California, Davis for Plant Science Bulletin
"This book is a fine summary of the various threads and accomplishments of contemporary island botany studies. Zoologists would do well to consider this volume because the coverage is broad and the topics it discusses are relevant to island biology as a whole."
Sherwin Carlquist, Quarterly Review of Biology
"This book provides an excellent overview of the current knowledge and research on island plants. It is a valuable guide and a good read for anyone interested in the biology of island floras worldwide."
Maarten J.M. Christenhusz, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society
"an excellent compendium."
Martin L. Cody, Ecology
"This book should be on the bookshelf of every biologist who teaches plant evolution, plant systematics, ecology and conservation as well as decision-makers and organizations who seek to preserve biology."
Harold W. Keller, Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas
