About this book

It includes sufficient information for some shorter introductory botany courses open to both majors and nonmajors, and is arranged so that certain sections can be omitted without disrupting the overall continuity of the course. Stern emphasizes current interests while presenting basic botanical principles.

In late 1999/early 2000, Kingsley Stern and McGraw-Hill Publishers initiated a search to find scientists to join the author team for Stern's Introductory Plant Biology. After nearly three decades of publishing this successful textbook, it was clear to Dr. Stern and the people at McGraw-Hill that new botanists would help to further enrich the content and continue the dedication and hard work needed for future editions.
