Magill's Encyclopedia of Science: Plant Life Review

“Aimed at high school and college students, this encyclopedia provides a broad overview of botanical and horticultural information. Nearly 400 topics are covered in the course of nearly 1300 pages, written by a rich variety of educators and scholars. Each essay is signed and includes cross references and bibliographies. While 196 new articles have been commissioned for this resource, 183 essays previously published in six other Magill references were updated and revised for inclusion here. The last volume in the set includes biographies of famous botanists, scientific-to-common and common-to-scientific plant name tables, a time line, a glossary, a list of web sites, a bibliography, and several indexes.”
