110 of 110 people found the following review helpful By Sue Walker (suewalker@strayduck.com) on 7 Sept. 2001
Format: Hardcover
Bill Neal has written a book which will help many people understand why plants are called what they are. He lists, alphabetically in Latin, words associated with plants. For example, 'bonariensis' means of, or from, Buenos Aires. This is an invaluable book for anyone wishing to learn about the botanical names of plants, and is formated in a delightful way. There are drawings, and notes on myths and legends, which add much interest. This is a highly informative, easy to understand book, which is also a pleasure to look at, and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Useful information and helpful to any gardener or student - would have been useful to know it is written from an American perspective before I bought it, however, that fact is not so noticable in this book as it can be in others - Many useful facts and snippets of information to accompany the botanic names makes this a very user friendly book - very well laid out in a logical order - takes the mystery away from the reasoning behind why Latin is used for naming living things. Even for those of us in the Horticultural trade this book is a useful reference resource.

Even though I studied Latin at university as part of my archaeological studies. I still find Latin in plants fascinating! After my studies I started working in gardening,because that was my 1st love. And I have always prefered the botanical Latin,to common names.because with the Latin you cannot go wrong,unlike the common names.For example. The european white water lily has 285 common names to it in europe alone. But only 1 Latin name.
