Thespesia populnea (L.) Solander ex Correa and Thespesia populneoides (Roxburgh) Kosteletsky (Malvaceae) by F. Raymond Fosberg( Book )

10 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pantropical Thespesia populnea (Malvaceae) is shown to be clearly separable into two species: T. populnea, which is pantropical on seashores, and T. populneoides of the Indian Ocean area, extending to Hainan Island, usually, but not always, somewhat inland. Hybrids between the two species occur where their ranges touch, and in Ceylon some of these hybrids have been widely propagated vegetatively as ornamentals and living fence-posts

Three Indo-Pacific Thelypteris species reinterpreted and a new African species described by F. Raymond Fosberg( Book )

10 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two species of Thelypteris which have been confused and to which a number of names have been applied were found to be separable by a number of characters. They must now be called Thelypteris opulenta and T. wagneri. Their distribution is Indo-Pacific, extending to Africa, and T. opulenta introduced into tropical America. T. wagneri and an African species, T. fadenii, are here described as new. The name Thelypteris interrupta, heretofore applied to this complex, is shown to be the correct name for what has commonly been called Dryopteris gongylodes and Thelypteris totta
