[APD] New revision of Echinodorus by Rataj

A new revision of the genus Echinodorus has apparently been made by Rataj
and published in April 2004 by Aqua Press. I'm leery of ordering this sight
unseen as Rataj was criticized by Haynes and Holm-Neilson, who cut Rataj's
original 47 species back to 26. And Kasselmann has also written a stinging
rebuke of Rataj's methods.


In his latest work, Rataj describes 62 species, 2 subspecies and 2


Has anyone seen this new book? Are Rataj's revisions likely to be accepted
or should it just be ignored?
