About this book

Language: Trilingual in English, German, and French

Robert Zander first published his 'Concise Dictionary of Plant Names' in 1927. This latest edition is a comprehensive dictionary of plant names, providing an authority on current nomenclature and correct classification for vascular plants. In all around 20 000 species in 3600 genera are listed with 10 000 cross-referenced synonyms. It includes tri-lingual introductory sections in English, French and in its native German as well as extensive lists of English, French and German common names.

Summary in German:
Durch neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse ändert sich die Zuordnung mancher Pflanzen in Gattungen, Familien und Arten und damit auch ihre Namensgebung. Der Zander bietet nach einer Einführung in die botanische Namenkunde, eine systematische Übersicht über die Farn- und Blütenpflanzen, deren gängige Trivialnamen sowie wissenschaftliche Gattungs- bzw. Artnamen. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der alphabetischen Auflistung der Gattungen und Arten. Aber auch die Autoren der Pflanzennamen und die englischen und französischen Pflanzennamen werden aufgelistet.
