About this book

This work, published in two volumes, contains descriptions of the wood and bark anatomies of 3000 dicotyledonous plants, highlighting the anatomical and phylogenetic diversity of these plants of the Northern Hemisphere.

The first volume principally treats families of the Early Angiosperms, Eudicots, Core Eudicots and Rosids. The book examines microsections of the xylem and phloem of herbs, shrubs and trees of 1200 species of various life forms of the temperate zone along altitudinal gradients from the lowland at the Mediterranean coast to the alpine zone in Western Europe. The global perspective of the findings is underlined by the analysis of 500 species from the Caucasus, the Rocky Mountains and Andes, the subtropical zone on the Canary Islands, the arid zones in the Sahara, in Eurasia, Arabia and Southwest North America, and the boreal and arctic zones in Eurasia and Canada.
