An extraordinary catalogue of the world's living diversity, this guide documents the major divisions, or phyla, of the five kingdoms: Prokaryotae; Prototista; Fungi; Animalia; Plantae. The new edition has new, concise introductory sections on the general features of each of the five kingdoms including background information and key definitions. This, the third edition is still the beautiful and brilliant compendium of biodiversity it always has been, only more so.
A new edition was published in December 2008 under the title Kingdoms and Domains: Illustrated Phyla of Life.
"It is remarkable that no one had previously thought of producing such a comprehensive, obvious and valuable document"
- Stephen Jay Gould
