4.0 out of 5 stars The Herbarium Handbook 26 July 2006
A little dated, but still the best text for anyone involved with the collection and cataloguing of plants and setting up and running of herbaria.

4.0 out of 5 stars Technical plant saving 30 Aug 2013

A thorough and professional guide to collecting and preserving plants. Not for the casual flower preserver, more for the professional herbarium worker.

3.0 out of 5 stars good publication, poorly bound 6 May 2013
By delonix - Published on Amazon.com

This book is comprehensive and authoritative, but it is somewhat out of date. My chief complaint has to do with covers on this paperback book. The outside of the book cover is plasticized. If you set the book flat on a table at 50% humidity and normal room temperature, within a short time the cover will roll into a complete circle, making it difficult to handle and impossible to place another book on top. If you stand the book on its bottom edge, both covers will roll this way within minutes. For a moderately expensive paperback book, this is a substantial inconvenience. This type of cover was a poor choice for economy by the press of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. Short of tearing the covers off of the book, I don't know how to make the book convenient for use. I can't honestly recommend this book unless you will be satisfied with a coverless book on your shelf.
