Riassunto: This handbook, consisting of six volumes, covers over 9000 taxa of succulents (excluding cacti), which have the ability to store water in their stems, leaves, or underground organs. In addition to the volumes on Monocotyledons and Dicotyledons, separate volumes are devoted to those families with predominantly succulent members, which show an especially great diversity, namely Aizoaceae, Asclepiadaceae and Crassulaceae. Following an alphabetical listing of families, genera and species, detailed descriptions are given, including the taxonomy with synonyms, data on the distribution and ecology, references, and keys to genera, species or subspecies. Over 2000 superb colour photographs complete this inventory of succulent plants.
Dal retro di copertina:
The Illustrated Handbook of Succulent Plants represents the first comprehensive taxonomic treatment of succulents in thirty years. It covers over 9000 taxa of all succulents except Cactaceae. This up-to-date work is ideally suited for anyone interested in these fascinating plants, including hobbyists, plant scientists, horticulturalists and herbarium staff.
Members of the iceplant family Aizoaceae are appreciated by farmers for their browsing stock. Hobbyists like to grow the stone plants and tourists enjoy the flowering of annuals. This first complete treatment of the leaf-succulent family Aizoaceae includes an inventory of 136 accepted genera of the 234 described ones and of all species ever placed in the family. Almost 800 colour photographs illustrate mainly rarely shown species.
