    Botany reference is work of art.

    This textbook is an invaluable botany resource. What makes it superb, however, are the illustrations at the beginning of the chapters. It is no wonder Rhonda Nass is regarded as one of the top botanical illustrators in the U.S. Her illustrations make plants come alive as no photograph could do.
