Abstract

A geographic atlas of world weeds.

Abstract

Based on 10 years' research worldwide, this comprehensive atlas provides a taxonomic survey of the weed species found in a total of 124 countries and listed alphabetically by genus with details of their synonyms. Each species is ranked according to their importance in the countries where they occur using abbreviations provided in a table of countries in English and 9 other languages. Believed to be the most comprehensive weed list ever assembled, this book represents a serious initiative to assist the research worker in identifying weed problems geographically.
