About this book

6,131 terms in English, French, German, Latin and Russian. This dictionary provides a wealth of information which will enable botanists to meet a wide range of translating requirements. It constitutes an extensive listing of the names of plants, trees, shrubs, mushrooms and lichens. Because of its broad scope, the dictionary will be an invaluable tool for botanists, students, crop science and forestry specialists, agriculturalists and many others who use foreign botanical literature.

"...the coverage is wide, and valuable features include the listing of common names for many plant families and genera, and for the non-vascular plants which are often omitted from reference works... the book can be recommended as a useful addition to libraries concerned with botany, agriculture and horticulture, as well as to individuals making frequent use of foreign literature in these fields."
