Beschreibung

This encyclopaedia contains a comprehensive treatment of the taxonomy of the families and genera of ferns and seed plants. The present volume, the fifth in this series, deals with three major groups of dicotyledons, the Capparales, Malvales, and Non-betalain Caryophyllales. The taxonomy of these groups, which comprise 40 families and 752 genera, is based on the results of the most recent research. This is especially true of the families Cruciferae and Malvaceae, to which more than two thirds of the genera treated in this volume belong. The integration of morphological information and the results of molecular studies have led to a revised classification and have opened the way to an understanding of character evolution in these strongly diversified groups.

From the reviews:
" ... a contribution fully worthy of the tradition of Adolf Engler, a book that will stand the test of time and be of extraordinary use for decades to come." (Peter H. Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden)
"The volume is an excellent summary of our knowledge of classification and it is updated with numerous recent references. ... The volume has a clear outline of data and good references, and I find it very useful, both for teaching, as well as for research. ... The key to genera is very helpful for identification purposes and has much potential for use in the herbarium. The series represents the most detailed account of seed plant diversity at this stage. This is a series everyone concerned with phylogeny should have in his library." (Plant Systematics and Evolution)
