Edited By: Roger Hyam and Richard J Pankhurst
Retitled from Concise Dictionary of Plant Names. Over 16,000 entries cover both the scientific and common names of flowering plants, ferns, and conifers - providing a short description of the plant and the origin of its name, the group or family to which it belongs, geographical origin and distribution, and applications in medicinal, culinary, industrial, and other areas. The dictionary concentrates primarily on north temperate plants, particularly those which grow out of doors or under cover in Britain, but it also includes some of the better known mosses, algae, lichens, and tropical plants world-wide.
