Dendrology: Cones, Flowers, Fruits and Seeds offers a comprehensive overview of the morphology of the reproductive organs of European woody plants. The book is conceptualized as a determination atlas with photographs which facilitate the identification of a particular taxon based on its cones, flowers, fruits and seeds. Over 355 species of trees and shrubs are described, including species that originate from North America, Asia, South America, Australia and Africa. Invasive woody species are also described. Content features include taxa organized in alphabetical order, beginning with the botanical names (conforming to the International Code of Nomenclature), flowering time, and distribution range.
This is a must-have reference for students and researchers in the fields of Dendrology, Botany, Forestry, Forest Management and Conservation, Arboriculture and Horticulture.
