The English translation of the Russian Arctic Flora, done by Graham
Griffiths and edited by John Packer got stuck after the first three volumes
from the originally planned 6 volumes.

Graham Griffiths died in May 2009

and the English translation terminated just in the middle. Some remarkable
parts, such as Yurztev's contributions to Rosaceae, are still avaiable only
in Russian. 

 

MY QUESTION: Is there any interest in continuing this translation? Am I
beating a dead horse when I am calling for finishing it?

 

Please,  reply to me directly at aceska at telus.net .

 

Thanks,

 

Adolf
