‘leaves one a better informed person, and who could ask for more than that from a dictionary?’ - Times Higher Education Supplement
This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary of botany available. Drawing on the information contained in the acclaimed Oxford Dictionary of Natural History, the text has been fully revised to give wide coverage on topics including biochemistry, plant physiology, cytology, ecology, genetics, evolution, bio-geography, earth history, and the earth sciences. There is worldwide coverage of taxonomic groups: one-third of the entries are devoted to taxa, from bacteria and fungi to the main groups of flowering and non-flowering plants.
This dictionary will be invaluable to students, amateur botanists and naturalists, and everyone with an interest in plants and their environments.
