About this book

Four-volume-set providing information on the origins and meanings of the names of many thousands of species of plants. The multilingual approach is particularly useful for finding the scientific name when only a colloquial name is known.
`Dr. Quattrocchi's dictionary will provide a much needed and very useful source of information... It is rather amazing that Dr. Quattrocchi was able to compile such a reference for the names of more than 22,500 genera and over 200,000 species of plants. The derivation of the names of genera, all in one place, provides a great service.' DE Boufford, Harvard University Herbaria
