Plants are fundamental to life on Earth - they provide the oxygen we breathe, our food and beverages, spices and herbs, fibres, medicines, fuels, dyes and building materials. To enable botanists to identify plants they have been classified by physical features and now by their DNA. Flowering Plants: a concise pictorial guide graphically illustrates over 100 of the most important plant families that shape our lives and environment, taken from the classic reference Flowering Plant Families of the World by V. H. Heywood, R. K. Brummitt, A. Culham and O. Seberg. Both as an illustration of the breathtaking beauty of plants and as an introduction to the science behind flowering plants, this concise pictorial guide provides a handy reference to flowering plant families and is sure to become part of every plant enthusiast's library.
