    DescriptionA beautifully illustrated reference to more than 100 flowering plant families. "Flowering Plants: A Pictorial Guide to the World's Flora" is a comprehensive source of botanical information. More than 100 flowering plant families are profiled with authoritative text and featured in more than 700 beautiful artworks. The book is divided into the two flowering plant groups: the dicotyledons, or dicots, which typically have two leaves in the seed's embryo, and the monocotyledons, or monocots, which typically have one leaf in the seed's embryo. This handsome reference includes familiar ornamentals, such as carnations, begonias and daffodils, as well as plants that are not as well known for their flowers, such as milkweed, ginseng and tea. Each entry is presented across two or more pages and includes a full page of detailed color illustrations that show the plant's anatomy, with all parts labeled in Latin and English. The expert text describes the plant's physical features, distribution and economic uses. Also included is a classification list of all plant families. An easily navigated reference, "Flowering Plants: A Pictorial Guide to the World's Flora" is ideal for gardeners, horticulturalists and anyone interested in botany.

    Review quote
    If you love plants, you'll enjoy dipping into this compendium of plant facts... The 700 illustrations...are lovely and may be the most appealing feature for many readers. Each plant family is accompanied by full-page illustrations of the plant's anatomy, with each part labeled... Classification organizes plants according to DNA sequencing. Further Resources lists scholarly publications on plant families. The glossary would be essential for all but botanists, and the index lists both the Latin and the English plant names. If your interests in botany extend beyond your own garden... Flowering Plants would be a valuable addition to your gardening library.--Edna Troiano"Washington Gardener" (03/01/2012)
