About this book

Deals with three major groups of dicotyledons, the Capparales, Malvales, and Non-betalain Caryophyllales. The taxonomy of these groups, which comprise 40 families and 752 genera, is based on the results of the most recent research. This is especially true of the families Cruciferae and Malvaceae, to which more than two thirds of the genera treated in this volume belong.

Es liegt wieder fur einen betrachtlichen Teil der Dicotylen eine zeitgemasse Bearbeitung vor, die sehr hilfreich ist und sich grosser Akzeptanz erfreuen wird. (Feddes Repertorium: Zeitschrift fur botanische Taxonomie und Geobotanik) "Mit dieser nutzlichen Zusammenfassung des aktuellen Kenntnisstands zur Systematik dieser Ordnungen wird den Botanikern und Palaobotanikern weltweit eine moderne Ubersicht und Betimmungshilfe fur die drei im Titel genannten Ordnungen gegeben. Gleichzeitig enthalt das Buch auch Hinweise zu weiteren Forschungsarbeiten. Es kann also warmstens empfohlen werden." (Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie 2003, Heft 3-4)
