H.W. Lack and David Mabberley

  • 'Walter Lack's biography of "Flora Graeca"... is a masterpiece of meticulous scholarship, expertly compiled and superbly written.... I cannot praise Professor Lack's achievement too highly.' E. Charles Nelson, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society
  • 'The "Flora Graeca Story" is a remarkable tale of drama and conflict, but above all of perseverance, excellence, and dedication.... A well-structured, eminently readable, and beautifully illustrated book - an altogether admirable achievement.' Arne Strid, Nordic Journal of Botany
