Series: title


The Sharmas (affiliated with the U. of Calcutta) introduce this treatment of those plant genera not covered in volume I-C, which dealt exclusively with dicotyledons. The wide-ranging coverage in this volume spans from two important groups of gynosperms, the Cycads (palm ferns) and the Pines, to monocotyledons (which have sprouting seeds with a single cotyledon or primary leaf) represented by genera significant in terms of phylogeny, agriculture, and horticulture. In 11 chapters, international scientists discuss botanical classification, environmental affects on the evolution of diversity, and methods of analyzing genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships. They include present-day distribution maps and phylogenetic distribution tables. Distributed in the US by Enfield.
