Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date paperback dictionary of botany available. It contains over 5,500 clear and concise entries on all aspects of botany, including biochemistry, plant physiology, cytology, ecology, genetics, evolution, biogeography, molecular biology, and the earth sciences. Classification is comprehensive and wide-ranging: approximately one-third of the entries are devoted to taxonomic groups, from bacteria and fungi to the main groups of flowering and non-flowering plants. Helpful cross-referencing throughout makes it a breeze to find exactly what you are looking for. This edition also includes biographical notes supplying context on important individuals in the field.

This fascinating dictionary is invaluable to students, amateur botanists and naturalists, and essential reading for anyone with an interest in plants and their environments. It will also provide a useful reference tool for students and others with interests in agriculture, horticulture, physical geography, and related fields.
