9780195082425: Flora of North America: North of Mexico; Volume 2: Pteridophytes and Gymnosperms

In Volume 2, over 50 contributors exhaustively describe and classify the ferns, fern allies, and gymnosperms of North America. Covering over two dozen fern and half a dozen gymnosperm families, they survey fern species of both ecological and horticultural importance and review such gymnosperm taxa as the conifers--the dominant trees in many forests as well as important timber plants--and cycads, which display significant evolutionary features. In all, the volume assembles 509 species of ferns and fern allies and infraspecific taxa in 70 genera. The editors have revised nearly 80 of these taxa to reflect classification changes since publication of the last standard work on ferns in North America. The gymnosperm treatments encompass 118 species in 22 genera. Identification keys, summaries of habitats and geographic ranges, pertinent synonymies, descriptions, chromosome numbers, and all other significant details are provided. More than 600 distribution maps and 65 illustration plates appear throughout.

About the Author:

The Editorial Committee of the Flora of North America (FNA) is responsible for the authoritative, multivolume work describing the native plants of North America.

Review:


"The second volume of this flora represents a monumental achievement....This volume does everything that a flora should - and more; a high quality of scholarship is evident throughout....Even more important is the degree to which recent systematic investigations are reflected in the treatments....This volume has set a high standard; it will serve as an excellent model for later volumes....The real 'review' of a flora comes in putting it to use, and I am looking forward to using this one! I recommend it whole-heartedly." --Walter S. Jedd, Economic Botany, published by The Society for Economic Botany by The New York Botanical Garden


"I recommend this volume of the Flora to all interested parties." --Michael T. Stieber, The Morton Arboretum. Lisle, IL, Science Books and Films


"Volume 2 of The Flora of North America is the first to provide a floristic treatment, here including ferns and fern allies, as well as the gymnosperms....For the quality of the information, and the quality of the book itself - paper, binding, feel in the hands - the asking price is a small amount to pay for this major publishing event."--Botanical and Herb Reviews


"No botanical library will be complete without the Flora of North America, and I eagerly await the appearance of future volumes."--Madroño


"An essential reference for botanists, professional or amateur, naturalists and anyone with a very serious interest in North American plants. Most highly recommended."--Wildlife Activist

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1993. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the second volume of what will be a magnificent compendium of taxonomic information about the more than 17,000 species of plants that grow in the United States and Canada. Volume 2 presents taxonomic treatments for the pteridophytes and gymnosperms (whisk ferns, horsetails, clubmosses, ferns, cycads, ginkgos, conifers, and gnetophytes). As in the first volume, identification keys, summaries of habitats and geographic ranges, distribution maps, pertinent synonymies, descriptions, chromosome numbers, phenological information, and other significant details are given for each species. Line drawings are included for species with special morphological characteristics. Treatments are written and reviewed by distinguished experts in systematic botany and are based on original observations of herbarium specimens supplemented by critical reviews of the literature. The 12 volumes that will comprise this compendium are uniquely important in that no comprehensive flora of North America currently exists. This volume is an essential addition to the libraries of professional and amateur botanists and plant taxonomists. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780195082425
