On CD the main text, presented in dictionary format,
covers over 3000 pages. It is preceded by Contents, Introduction
and an extensive list of Definitions of Botanical Names and is
followed by a Bibliography and an over 300-page comprehensive
The alphabetic presentation of botanical and common names (regardless
of language) enables the reader not only to find the species
concerned quickly but also to see at a glance those occasions
identified on which a botanical or common name applies to more
than one species. The genera themselves are integrated into the
dictionary too and within each genus those of its species for
which there are entries appear in similar order.
The General Index gives the reader
the great advantage of a highly refined searching tool embracing
detailed breakdowns of and access via nationalities, tribes,
religions, individuals and most disciplines, including any
alternative names by which these and the many subjects might
be known. On this Website, in the section ‘What is Plant Biographies?’, you
will find an extract from the 2006 General Index which illustrates
its comprehensive nature – plus examples of Subjects Covered
which are not necessarily shown in this extract.
The CD is updated periodically and notice of a new edition will
be broadcast on this Website.
