We print all articles in their entirety with ALL PHOTOS,
which are an essential part of Bayer's writings, not only for his species
concept, but also because they constitute a photographic herbarium of
habitat plants essential
for all scientists and hobbyists seriously interested in the subject.
Alsterworthia International is happy to share information for the common
