Product Synopsis

No previously published work has so comprehensively compiled essential information as this, covering almost 10,000 vascular plants of commercial importance throughout the world. For each plant the accepted scientific name, synonyms, common names, economic uses, and geographical distribution are provided. "World Economic Plants: A Standard Reference" provides the broad coverage needed in a global economy. It includes information garnered during more than two decades of research on economic plants. The information given conforms to all international standards for botanical data and results from an extensive review of literature and the input of numerous agricultural and botanical scientists. This book is invaluable to everyone dealing with economic vascular plants, be they from research or commerce including international agriculture, horticulture, or government.
