About this book

Abridged version of 6 volume European Garden Flora, this handy single volume is a digest that considers familes and genera, but not species. It provides a means for the accurate identification of over 190 families and 2220 genera of flowering plants cultivated out-of-doors in gardens in north-west Europe and in other geographical regions with a similar climate, including parts of North America. A key to all the families is provided and, for each of the families, a key to the genera within it. Scientific descriptions of families and genera follow, including information on the number of constituent genera or species, and details of geographical distribution.

'! an excellent volume to keep within easy reach !'. Susyn Andrews, The Horticulturist 'This is a functional book ! There is an abundance of information providing users with a convenient means of accurate recognition.' Paul Wymer, Biologist ' ! an excellent book of its kind and will surely be snapped up by devotees.' Journal of Field Studies
