Cryptocoryne, otherwise known as water trumpets, are most commonly seen outside their natural habitat in aquaria. In their natural state they are much more difficult to come across as they originate from natural rivers and streams in rainforests. This book, originally published in 2009, sets out to be the first comprehensive account of the species on the Malaysian peninsula. Packed into its 102 pages is information on the history, names, synonyms, floral biology, ecology, biogeography and conservation of the plants. There is also a chapter on the evolution of cryptocoryne backed up by evidence from chromosome numbers and molecular DNA analysis. Includes several colour photographs.
