Plant Identification Terminology provides over nineteen hundred clear illustrations of terms used in plant identification keys and descriptions. It also includes definitions for more than twenty-seven hundred taxonomic terms. Plant taxonomy employs an extensive and complex terminology. Professional botanists often need several years in the field to master this terminology, and it present a daunting obstacle to the student of taxonomy. The meaning of most botanical terms, however, is immediately apparent when in illustration is available. That is the purpose of this book.
