This is a major reference work of great use to those engaged in botany, horticulture and plant ecology - I shall certainly keep it handy on my bookshelf. Martin Crawford, Agroforestry News, May 2008

"The contributing authors have done a find job of reducing the wealth of information that exists on many of these species to a concise and helpful text....overall this is an essential text for any serious horticultural or indeed botanical library"
