About this book

Originally published between 1964 and 1980, this fourth volume is a revision of the seventh edition of Willis, with substantial amendments and additions. One distinct feature is an alphabetical list of accepted family names in this dictionary with their equivalents in Bentham & Hooker's Genera Plantarum and Engler's Syllabus.

"This book is a quick source of reference to everyday problems of nomenclature and classification. Libraries of botanical and biological institutions throughout the world should not be without it."
- The New Phytologist

"This book is highly recommended as a must for taxonomists and others who are interested in the generic and family names of vascular plants."
- Baileya

"[...] the more one examines this volume the more it appears as a tremendous compendium of valuable information [...] Authors and editors alike are to be highly congratulated."
- Excerpta Botanica
