"The glossary is recommended for horticultural and academic libraries as well as public libraries that serve large numbers of gardeners. The greatly expanded size makes this edition useful even for libraries that have previous editions."

"I am pleased to welcome this book into my library."
John L. Strother, Plant Science Bulletin
An invaluable reference for botanists and horticulturalists, this book begins with an historical account of the significant changes in the ways plants have been known and named. It then provides a comprehensive glossary of generic and specific plant names, which includes the Greek, Latin, or other source of each name.
