International in scope, this unique reference allows matching of scientific and common names through a comprehensive cross index. The first volume is organized alphabetically by scientific name while the other two volumes are a cross index by common name. Phylum, order, and family are also provided as well as the language of the common name which helps to identify its geographic location.
