Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Provides a comprehensive listing of all currently accepted generic names of seed plants and all synonyms found in the modern literature, with approximately 16,000 genera and over 500 families treated separately. Each generic name entry includes geographical distribution, family, number of species, and authority and year of publication. Each family name entry includes the family's order, the number of genera and species, and the family's distribution, as well as notes on any subfamilies.

Book News Annotation:

A reference book containing brief information about names at the rank of genus. Changes from previous such references include a listing of only "living" synonyms found in modern botanical literature and the exclusion of generic hybrid names. Many recently-published generic names, however, are included. Each generic entry provides the name, authority, date, family, number of species, and geographical distribution. Family names (including synonyms) are listed alphabetically before the list of generic names; entries consist of the order to which the family is assigned, the number of genera and species, and the distribution. Subfamilies and the principal genera are also listed.
