Brief Description

Learn More about the Book

This book provides a selective annotated bibliography of the principal floras and related works of inventory for vascular plants. The second edition has been completely updated and expanded to take into account the substantial literature of the late twentieth century, and features a more fully developed review of the history of floristic documentation. The works covered in this volume are principally specialist publications such as floras, checklists, distribution atlases, systematic iconographies and enumerations, or catalogues. In addition, some popularly oriented books are also included. The Guide is organized in ten geographical divisions, with these successively divided into regions and units, each of which is prefaced with a historical review of floristic studies. The book also includes general chapters on botanical bibliography, the history of floras, general principles and current trends, plus an appendix on bibliographic searching, a lexicon of serial abbreviations, and author and geographical indexes.
