About this book

There has been a steady demand for the first edition of the conifer book Pines, which sold out in 2002. Therefore, a second edition, which is a modest update, has been written. The book is an overview with line drawings of the commonly known species of pines, giving concise but essential information on identification, distribution and ecology. The revised edition contains several taxonomic changes, a new chapter on phylogeny and classification and amendments to some of the information given in the first edition, especially in the species accounts. Conservation aspects have been added to species accounts in a concise format, following IUCN evaluations. The book contains a total of 92 drawings and 103 distribution maps. With these amendments the information should have been updated to a satisfactory level, without altering the original format and scope.
