About this book

With over 800 color photos showcasing a representative spectrum of the flowering plants of the United States and Canada, A Tour of the Flowering Plants provides an overview of plant families and evolutionary relationships, and introduces a modern system of angiosperm classification based on the work of a group of scientists organized as the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group. The book features common and scientific names for the genera of each plant family, a glossary of botanical terms to aid the beginner, and a useful list of scientific references to facilitate further exploration.

An accompanying CD-ROM allows users to navigate all text and photos with a conveniently bookmarked PDF.
