About this book

Language: English

Rhizomes, tubers, bulbs and roots of herbaceous plants are overlooked not only due to their position in the soil but also because they are wrongly considered unimportant. This book focuses on these belowground organs as they are responsible for key ecological functions of temperate herbs, like overwintering, clonal multiplication and resprouting after disturbance. These functions are connected with plant architecture and Temperate Herbs presents a synthesis of previous attempts to classify basic plant architectural models. The belowground plant organs of temperate herbs are documented in more than 1000 drawings made during two decades of study of belowground organs of Central European plants.

The book will be a basic tool not only for ecologists but also for amateur botanists, gardeners and agricultural scientists who want to know more about belowground plant organs and their functions.
