This plant book aims to help identify flowering plants to genus and family level anywhere in the world. There are very few available works which are both comprehensive and up-to-date for all the flowering plants families and genera of the world. "The Flowering Plants Handbook" is an easy to use identification guide to the world's flowering plants designed for both specialists and non-specialists and from beginner to expert. So whether you're a botanist, ecologist, conservation biologist, horticulturalist or a plant enthusiast then this is "The Flowering Plants Handbook" for you. "The Flowering Plants Handbook" contains descriptions of all currently recognised flowering plant families, morphological notes for 6,656 genera (all current genera for 398/413 families) and over 3,000 images and illustrations. Flowering plants can be identified using "The Flowering Plants Handbook" to family and much of the world's generic diversity in four 'easy' steps. Some plants will be identified correctly quickly, whilst others may require some retracing of steps and take a little more time. The advantage of "The Flowering Plants Handbook" is that it helps the user learn about the classification system and plant diversity during the identification process. This work was compiled and developed using the living, library and herbarium collections at the University of Aberdeen, Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.Biografía del autor:
