Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic History of Latin American Vegetation and Terrestrial Environments
Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic History of Latin American Vegetation and Terrestrial Environments

Price: $95.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for botanists, January 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a comprehensive and detailed work on the geological, palynological, and fossil data available for this large and biologically rich region. The book proceeds through chapters dedicated to description of current vegetation and geological history, then proceeds to an exhaustive list of fossils and palynological time series, and completes with an in-depth interpretation of the previously described evidence, and a discussion of the current state of knowledge about the historical vegetation of the region. Subsections in the chapters are organized by geopolitical and ecological regions. The book is information-dense but very readable, and the bibliographies alone are worth the list price for anyone with a serious interest in the botanical ecology and natural history of the New World. Highly recommended for botanists, ecologists, or interested readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, innovative plant list, with nice photos, October 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book showcases a variety of rare East Asian plants, many of which show extreme promise for Gardens. The late Peter Wharton was fascinated by the diversity of Asian species that have as of yet gained little or no recognition in the horticultural trade. As you might expect, the book is a bit ahead of its time. At least half of the plants found in it are not yet available even from mail order nurseries in North America. Almost all plant descriptions are accompanied by at least one photo for reference. However, the plates are printed together in fascicles between the text sections, which makes for a lot of page-flipping to match a description with its image. Some of the descriptions are also a bit short on detail and don't offer specific suggestions for optimal growing conditions. However, many of these plants are so new to gardens that there just isn't much to say until more field-testing by gardeners has been done. For the price, it is a must have addition to any serious temperate gardener's reference library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable solution to a tough problem, October 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This dog door is a good solution to the issue of letting your dogs in and out through a glass door. The dog entrance/exit panel works fine and the door fits conveniently against the side of the house. However, it is only single-pane glass, and the sealing hardware that ships with it is not of good quality, so expect to make a trip or two to the hardware store if you live in a very cold climate and don't want your house leaking heat like a sieve in the winter. The single-pane glass also gets very cold and collects condensation. The installation instructions are acceptable but not great, and I also had to buy better screws than provided to get the door installed. If you want this panel to be secure (i.e. you want to be able to lock the door) you will need to drill *at least* four screw holes into the frame of your sliding glass door, to attach the pet panel. Most people will probably want to do six: two to secure the top, two on bottom, and two on the door itself to attach the locking mechanism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent maps, September 11, 2009

Great maps, better than other comparable gazetteers and more complete. Highly recommended. Would be better if more cities were shown at higher resolution. Otherwise, no complaints.

3.0 out of 5 stars Taxonomically useful but insufficient for identification purposes, April 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This information-rich reference work will be invaluable for those deeply invested in bamboo taxonomy or systematics, but those botanists or laypeople looking for an identification manual-type treatment should not waste the significant amount of money required to purchase it. The book contains terse descriptions of every species (and many cultivars) of bamboo known to the author at the time of publication, along with synonymy and very brief entries on geographic distributions, and also annotated lists of currently recognized supra-specific taxa. Perhaps of greatest value are the lists of publications relating to each species, which are exhaustive and represent a colossal amount of work. Completely lacking however are photographs, illustrations, and botanical identification keys. This unfortunate omission significantly reduces the accessibility of the other information, since one absolutely must have some relatively good idea of what species to look up before this book will become useful as something more than a paperweight. It shines more as an annotated bibliography indexed by species than anything else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent taxonomic resource, March 23, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is very good scientific treatment of the genus Passiflora, and is also the most complete treatment of the genus available in book form. It contains a wealth of information, from purely taxonomic data, to horticultural information and natural history. The species descriptions are short but informative, and most are accompanied by leaf illustrations that are useful for checking identifications. The color plates are numerous and do an excellent job of documenting Passiflora diversity, both morphological as well as socio-economic. Although many species are not treated here (about half the genus is missing), this does represent the most complete standalone treatment of the genus available to date. Most of those species that any layman or casually interested botanist is likely to encounter are included, and a table at the beginning lists the approximate numbers of species for all infrageneric taxa, which should help those studying diversity in the genus. Photographs of every listed species are included in the color plates, including numerous rare and infrequently documented taxa, further increasing the scientific value of this book. There are also short chapters on passion fruits, regional descriptions of Passiflora diversity (Belize and the Atlantic forest of Brazil, respectively), cultivation, and more. Definitely a worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in the genus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely photos and good information, if incomplete, March 23, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Passion Flowers (Paperback)
This is a beautiful book with many impressive photographs of wild and cultivated Passiflora species, written by one of the foremost Passiflora botanists alive. Unfortunately it is rather incomplete, and only contains descriptions for a fraction of the species in the genus. However, this drawback does not detract from the appeal of the book, which seems mostly geared toward horticultural enthusiasts and botanists looking for quick desk reference "field guide" type identification help. The species that are contained in the book are described in depth, with notes on natural history and much information on cultivation. The book should be a great help identifying almost all commonly cultivated Passiflora. And of course, the photos are stunning and extremely helpful for characterizing the species. Definitely a book that any Passiflora botanists or enthusiasts would appreciate and use.

Also worth noting is that since the publication of this book, numerous new species of Passiflora have been described (some by the Vanderplank himself, such as P. miniata), some of which are in conflict with the species descriptions in this book. It is worth performing a Google Scholar search on any given species to be sure and turn up the most recent taxonomic literature before conclusively settling on an identification made using this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars never had a problem, January 16, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use this card with my mobile phone, an LG VX8100. The card works great with the phone, music playback is perfect. Never tried it with video. SanDisk has always provided quality products for me in the past, I recommend this card to anyone who needs a standard miniSD for their device... Not that this card is NOT high speed so if you are using a newer device that does video recording and can take advantage of high speed cards, you are better off buying a different card.

5.0 out of 5 stars my sister loves these headphones, January 16, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought them for my sister and she has nothing but great things to say about them. I did a lot of research and these consistently got the best reviews for the price. My sister is very interested in electronic music, so she's picky about sound quality. She's had these headphones for over a year now and uses them every day with her iPod. She's never said anything bad about them, so I'm assuming they're good enough quality for 90% of everyday music listeners.

3.0 out of 5 stars was a great book a couple of years ago, January 16, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Probably a bit out of date at this point. For me, this book wasn't that useful, since I generally refer to the W3C site for information about CSS. But it's a nice desk reference, and a standard tool for almost all CSS developers. There's probably a new version out by now to address all the developments that have happened in the past couple of years, I would look for that (or wait until one comes out, it won't be long).
