About this book

First comprehensive guide to the legumes of the world, describing and illustrating all 727 genera. Legumes contribute enormously to the world's economy – through food and drink, pharmaceuticals, medicines, biotechnology, building and construction, textiles, furniture, horticulture, paper and pulp, fertilizers, chemicals, pest control and ecotourism. Legumes of the World spotlights as yet untapped economic potential and for the first time places genera in a modern systematic framework. Containing over 1000 illustrations, this is a lavish yet much needed reference for botanists and other professionals involved with legumes.
