Product description


"A well-crafted, copiously illustrated synthesis that will have a very long shelf life."--Taxon

"Readable and enjoyable. . . . Every botanical institute should be happy to include it in its library, both for the scientific personnel and, even more, for the students."--Plant Science Bulletin

"A brilliant summary of present-day and fossil cycads, the most primitive of living seed plants. Clearly-written and well-organized. . . . A lovely book, well suited to the student of plant evolution and the serious sub-tropical horticulturist alike."--F. Olday, Northeastern Naturalist

"The authors have done a superb job of synthesizing information from scattered sources. A significant contribution to the field, their book is readily comprehensible and will appeal to a wide audience."--Robert Ornduff, University of California, Berkeley
