Biology of Plants (7TH 05 - Old Edition)


Biology of Plants (7TH 05 - Old Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long acclaimed as the definitive introductory botany text for majors,

Biology of Plants is especially known for its comprehensive coverage and

its magnificent art program.  The new edition offers a wealth of new information, especially in the areas of taxonomy, genomics, plant hormones, and Arabidopsis research.

Book News Annotation:

In this seventh edition of a text for undergraduates, Raven (Missouri Botanical Garden; Washington University) updates material on areas such as new molecular methods for studying plants, the evolution of angiosperms, and seedless vascular plants, and incorporates changes in the classification of protists and in taxonomy. The text continues to define plants as consisting only of bryophytes and vascular plants, covering all the groups of organisms traditionally considered by college departments of botany or plant biology.
