This is a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in, and a love of, the plant world. The illustrations are clearly and beautifully drawn and in many cases can stand alone to define the term. Highly recommended for gardeners, botanists, naturalists, and anyone needing a clear understanding of botanical terminology.
Wonderful, clear drawings and brief descriptions of hundreds of botanical terms. Even someone who knows about plants and their parts will learn many new words. For those tiny bits, especially. Excellent for pointing out the smaller details of plants and flowers, and make one better at noticing and appreciating the wonder of the botanical world.
I have pre-ordered the book and will update this review when it's in. But the first author is an exceedingly experienced botanist who has taught countless other plant lovers of all persuasions, the nuances of plant morphology. I know her to be a gifted ambassador for plants, and I look forward to getting my hands on this book!
