Systematic botany of flowering plants; a new phylogenetic approach to angiosperms of the temperate and tropical regions. (CD-ROM included)

Spichiger, Rodolphe-Edouard et al.

Science Publishers, Inc., [c]2004

413 p.


In this English translation of the French textbook used in their botany courses, Spichiger (biosystematics, floristics, and tropical botany, U. of Geneva, Switzerland) and his colleagues describe selected families of flowering plants with an emphasis on tropical ones. In addition to taxonomic information, they also discuss the history of botanical classification, species evolution and diversity. The well-illustrated volume follows the taxonomic classification of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group, plus some new concepts. Appendices include a glossary, identification key, and list of selected species of the families described featured in color photos on the companion CD-ROM. Distributed in the US by Enfield.
