WARD C J Roddie was a renowned Durban botanist, ecologists and lecturer. He was one of the most prolific collectors of plant specimens in KZN with over 22 000 plant speciemens identified and distributed to herbaria throughout the region.

He always wanted to share his experiences with others, and here we help to share his legacy with everyone.

Sedges (Cyperaceae) were one of Roddy's favourite plant groups. Consequently, he focussed some of his efforts into demystifying this group and compiling some photooraphic collections to help with ID and typification of the species. We hope you too find this group a rewarding study.
