Full description for Flowering Plants
A 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.
