Dictionary of Plant Names: Botanical Names and Their Common Name Equivalents

Overview


Wonderfully useful and complete, this little book includes common name cross-references, geographical distribution, and name origins, all at a bargain price. Pronunciations given are decidedly Britannic, but this seems a trivial matter in a book that fills so essential a need so conveniently.
