Until now there has been no readily available source of information on how to go about identifying flowering plants. The dissection of flowers, the methods of observing their structure and the application of these to identification are rarely described.
Profusely illustrated with over 130 detailed line drawings and eight pages of colour plates, this book contains a comprehensive chapter on floral structure, and introductions to the arrangement of flowers on plants, reproduction, plant structure and function, and the way plants are grouped and named.
Great book for any keen gardener or botany students. 299pp. First published in 1987, this edition 2011
