By far the world's largest, most accurate, and most in-depth English-Spanish, Spanish-English work in botany: a wealth of terms compiled from thousands of botanical studies carried out by doctors in their fields.
Both plant and tree species glossaries are English-Latin-Spanish and Spanish-Latin-English, in accordance with the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, and broken down by country. No more paging through the incomplete, semi-accurate lists in print or online; this work provides authoritative clarity for student and professional alike.
Covers all aspects of botany: plant biochemistry, plant species, tree species, plant ecophysiology, paleobotany, plant morphology, plant anatomy, taxonomy and classification, horticulture, arboriculture, plant breeding and genetics, palynology, pteridology, agrostology, orchidology, and much more...
The author is a leading authority on butterflies, who has published both academic papers and books and this depth of knowledge is clearly evident in the book...The appendices alone are an achievement, useful to anyone who wants to quickly check larval hostplants, popular nectar sources or even the BAP status of species. (British Wildlife, January 2011) "This ponderous book not only uses an enormous amount of literature data, but takes advantage from the life-span experience of the author...The entire book is splendidly illustrated. There are an extraordinary number of graphs (many original) and a good selection of beautiful photographs to illustrate biotopes and species. Printing quality is excellent. The price is fully justified and it is important to know that the author has offered to donate the royalties towards the work of Butterfly Conservation. The book should be essential reading for students and researchers in ecology and conservation, and those concerned with environmental management and assessment." (Biological Conservation, January 2011) "Personally, I find this one of the most significant books published in my field over the last few years. I recommend this highly interesting and stimulating book to all conservation biologists, entomologists, and students in the field of conservation, entomology or general ecology." (British Wildlife , January 2011) "[The] book should also inspire a wide range of people working on different taxonomic groups." (Journal of Insect Conservation, July 2010)
