[ This set of files is an HTML version of a manuscript that was a precursor to a treatment of the aquatic pteridophytes of Papua New Guinea, published in G.J. Leach & P.L. Osborne (1985), Freshwater Plants of Papua New Guinea. It is presented here essentially as it was at the time, and users should be aware that references and collections made over the last 14 years have not been added and that taxonomy and nomenclature has not been updated accordingly. An update is intended, as time permits. - jrc ]
