Illustrated Plant Glossary
The Illustrated Plant Glossary is a comprehensive glossary of over 4000 terms related to plant sciences, featuring many superb colour illustrations to aid understanding.
The topics covered in this glossary include anatomy, angiosperms, bryophytes, chemistry, cytology, family specific terms, ferns and fern allies, flowers, fruit, genetics, gymnosperms, habit and growth, habitat and ecology, indumentum, inflorescence, leaves, reproduction, roots, seeds, systematics and more.
The Illustrated Plant Glossary is a must-have reference for plant scientists, plant science teachers and students, libraries, horticulturalists, ecologists, gardeners and naturalists.
A good botanical glossary – and by good, I mean one that is both useful and used often – is a potent mix of art and science. In this case, the art is both literal, through Enid Mayfield’s beautifully soft and precise watercolours, and in the exquisite way the definitions are crafted and presented.
