This third edition of a classic bibliography retains the best features of its predecessor, published ten years ago, with greatly expanded coverage of Web sites. Its nearly 1,000 annotated entries focus on core materials for botanists and plant biologists. Organized by topic rather than format, it runs the gamut from Plant Physiology to Genetics and Biotechnology. Introductory chapters discuss the study of plants, characteristics of plant biology literature, and the history of the field and the people in it. This book is for both neophyte and seasoned botanists and their information purveyors.
