This second edition, revised and updated, of 'A Handbook of the World's Conifers' includes all the world's 615 species of conifers, of which some 200 occur in the tropics. It gives as much information about these and the Southern Hemisphere conifers as about the better known species, drawing on research into the taxonomy, biology, ecology, distribution and uses by the author over nearly 35 years. The result is a truly encyclopaedic work, a true handbook of all the world's conifers, richly illustrated by the author with his line drawings and photographs taken from the natural habitats of the species.
Readership : Botanical Institutes (libraries), Biological Faculties of Universities (libraries), dendrologists, foresters, horticulturists, ecologists, conservationists (forests and trees), members of botanical and dendrological societies.
