Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lancaster (geology, Arizona State U.) reports on investigations of dune forms, processes and sediments in the Namib Sand Sea of southwestern Africa, which are used to develop models for the formation of dunes and sand seas and their rock equivalents. A detailed presentation of floral dissection, the methods of observing floral structure, and the application of these to identification. Thoroughly illustrated with clear line drawings and eight pages of color plates. Most of the examples occur naturally, or in cultivation, in south-eastern Australia, but the principles of plant identification are applicable anywhere. Acidic paper. Available in North America from ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
