About this book

The rapid losses in phytodiversity in recent years have forced plant taxonomists to address the issues of collection, preservation, storage and recording of botanical materials for future use. In this book 21 experts in systematic botany outline a plan for mapping phytodiversity in the next half century. An ambitious programme to catalogue between 250,000 and 400,000 species is outlined.
