Document service

Interesting documents on Cryptocoryne and Lagenandra in the internet! As most literature is not easy to find (you will have to look at botanical institutes for example), there is a demand on available digital resources. Of course, most documents are unavailable in a digital way because of copyright reasons, but some are.
