Pressestimmen"The appeal of Andre Michaux in Florida lies in its interest and usefulness to both professional and amateur botanists, horticulturalists, gardeners, field naturalists, and historians." - Ronald L. Stuckey, Museum of Biological Diversity, Ohio State University "Botanists, historians, and amateur naturalists alike will delight in this meticulous telling of Andre Michaux's journey in Florida.
