The book's contributors offer valuable background by pointing out threatened and widespread species, discussing nomenclature, and pondering the origins of plants and their uses. An overview of plant habitats provides a compelling context for the book's encyclopedic listing of species. In the world of horticulture, the popular dendrobiums are well served by this beautifully produced new resource. Alice JoyceCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
