Atlas of Flowering Plants

ISBN: 9780764361333

Author: Ingeborg Niesler    Publisher: Schiffer Books

Flowers come in an unbelievable array of shapes and colors. Yet, their leaf and fruit forms surpass even their floral splendor. From Acanthaceae to Zygophyllaceae, this book features magnificent colour portraits of 200 flowering-plant families from around the world. The deconstructed plant parts -- flowers, leaves, stamens, and fruits -- are individually scanned and arranged side by side on black background to provide unique insight into how plants grow and what they look like. The addition of text describing the plant families, and cross sections of the organs of some species, makes this book a valuable resource for botanical artists and horticultural enthusiasts.
