A Description of some Trees, Shrubs and Lianes of Southern Rhodesia


    Miss STEEDMAN is to be congratulated on having produced a book on the trees, shrubs and lianes of Southern Rhodesia, which should be of great service to residents in the colony and should stimulate an interest in the vegetation of the country and also, it is to be hoped, serve a useful purpose in arresting the destruction of the indigenous timber. Miss Steedman has worked under considerable difficulties, being away from sources of botanical literature, and, in consequence, some errors in the nomenclature of the plants to which she refers have crept in. This, however, is a minor point which can easily be set right when she has had an opportunity of consulting authorities and literature, should a second edition of the book be called for.
