By far the best dictionary of botanical nomenclature published to date. Carry it in your pocket and never again be at a loss for a botanical name. Its sheer utility will commend it to every botanist and plant enthusiast. But, beyond that, readers will find it equally delightful. The dictionary is a concise guide to the morass of botanical and common names. Wonderfully useful and complete, this little book includes common name cross-references, geographical distribution, and name origins, all at a bargain price. Pronunciations given are decidedly Britannic, but this seems a trivial matter in a book that fills so essential a need so conveniently.
