Consultant Editior: V H Heywood PhD DSc FLS FIBiol
Hardcover with Dustjacket
Excellent resource on plants and where they are located.
The opening section of Flowering Plants of the World is an informative introduction to the forms, structure, ecology, uses and classification of flowering plants. It is followed by a comprehensive glossary which is illustrated in full color, as is the Introduction. More than 300 families of the world's Angiosperms are then described, each with a concise and readable account of the distribution, diagnostic features, classification and economic uses of its members. Every family entry also has a specially designed quick-reference panel giving details of the number of species and genera, their general distribution and economic uses, while the distribution is also presented visiually on a map for extra clarity. The specially commissioned color plates illustrating more than 200 families are not only scientifically accurate but also constitute a beautiful and unique collection of paintings.
Condition: EX to LN - Clean crisp pages, tight binding. Note* page 164 has the top corner of page separated from its backside. It is present and could be restored by a professional book restorer. The backside(page 163) is complete and readable. I don't know how this happened But the piece that belongs to the top of page 164 is here sandwiched between page 164 and 165 for you to fix how you wish. Other than that this is an awesome reference Guide and great for the student studing plants or for the plant lover wishing to know more than a standard gardening book. There is nothing else wrong with this book. All other pages are perfect. For ratings click store link above and view my terms page.
