About this book

Language: Russian

The book is a guide to the conifers of St. Petersburg and surrounding areas, and is the second extended edition. In the first part of the book, the story of the introduction of conifers in St. Petersburg is presented in a popular and easily accessible form and practical tips are given on cultivating various conifers and using them in landscaping and ornamental gardening. In the second part, much attention is paid to the morphology of conifers. Detailed morphological descriptions are given for 240 taxa that have successfully passed introduction tests in St. Petersburg. The book includes original keys for identifying families, genera and species, based primarily on the basis of signs of vegetative organs. The work is illustrated with original drawings and photographs.

Summary in Russian:
Книга является руководством по хвойным Санкт-Петербурга и прилегающих областей, и представляет собой второе расширенное издание.  В первой части книги в популярной и легкодоступной форме изложена история интродукции хвойных в Санкт-Петербурге и приводятся практические советы по культивированию различных хвойных и использованию их в озеленении и декоративном садоводстве. Во второй части большое внимание уделено морфологии хвойных. В отличие от других работ по голосеменным, приводятся подробные морфологические описания для 240 таксонов, успешно прошедших интродукционные испытания в условиях Санкт- Петербурга. В книгу включены оригинальные ключи для определения семейств, родов и видов, построенные преимущественно на основе признаков вегетативных органов. Работа иллюстрирована оригинальными рисунками и фотографиями.
