About this book

An Atlas of the World's Conifers is the first ever atlas of all known conifer species. It is based on locality information of ca. 35,000 collected herbarium specimens held in scientific institutions. As well as providing natural distribution maps for each species, Farjon and Filer give the reader comprehensive insight into the biogeography, diversity and conservation status of conifers on all continents, dispelling the widely held view that they are primarily a northern boreal plant group. Conifer diversity is analysed and presented with a taxonomic and geographic perspective. Distribution patterns are interpreted using the latest information on continental drift, dispersal and phylogeny. The entire dataset supporting An Atlas of the World's Conifers can be consulted and verified online. These data can also be used for further research and are an invaluable research tool for anyone working on conifer systematics, biogeography or conservation.
