Plant form: an illustrated guide to flowering plant morphology

Oxford University Press, 1991 - 341 páginas
This richly illustrated volume provides comprehensive coverage of the immense variation in the external structure of flowering plants. It defines the innumerable details of growing and mature plants, describing their leaves, flowers, roots and seeds in a manner that will enable professionals and amateurs alike to identify many difficult features. The book also explains much of the terminology that is used in professional botanical texts and reference books, but rarely explained for novices. The unique collection of color photographs and stunning original line drawings add to the fascination and the usefulness of the book. By focusing on morphological features, which are often passed over in anatomically-oriented texts, this volume will be a valuable resource for all students and professionals in botany, horticulture, and forestry, as well as anyone interested in the amazing variety of plant forms.
