Flora Of North America Volume 7 Magnoliophyta Dilleniidae from the Author: Flora of North America Editorial Committee,. Flora of North America Volume 7 is the seventh volume of nineteen on dicotyledons to be published in the Flora of North America series. It treats more than 910 species classified among 114 genera in five families in the following two orders of the subclass Dilleniidae: Salicales (Willow order) and Capparales (Caper order). The families covered in Volume 7 include Salicaceae, Capparaceae, Brassicaceae, Moringaceae, and Resedaceae. Each genus has representative species illustrated with a line drawing that, in combination with keys and descriptions, will facilitate identifications of these groups of plants. Even though many genera of mustards (Brassicaceae-nearly 100 genera with c. 750 species) are known in the flora area due to introduced species, many quite species-rich genera-Draba (140 species), Boechera (109 spp.), Physaria (90 spp.), Lepidium (40 spp.), Streptanthus (33 spp.), and Rorippa (23 spp.)-have many endemic species that are known from quite restricted areas within North America. The volume includes identification keys, descriptions, line drawings, and ecological characteristics for each of the species; distribution maps for the native and established species; and a list of the synonyms currently in use for the accepted names. The treatments, each of which has been extensively reviewed, are based on a combination of original observations and critical review of the literature.

The European Garden Flora from the Author: . The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental plants and has been designed to meet the highest scientific standards. The vocabulary has nevertheless been kept as uncomplicated as possible so that the work is fully accessible to the informed nurseryman, gardener, and landscape architect, as well as the professional botanist. Volume VI concludes the Flora and contains accounts of 38 families of dicotyledons, including Compositae (with over 190 genera), the largest family of flowering plants. Many other genera of horticultural importance such as Calceolaria, Penstemon, Hebe, Solanum, Buddleia, and Sencio are also discussed. Comprehensive keys are provided at the level of family, genus and species and line diagrams are included to illustrate important diagnostic features of critical taxa. References are made to useful illustrations and taxonomic accounts, and a small amount of guidance on cultivation is also included for many genera.
