Description
Information
This second edition of The Penguin Dictionary of Plant Sciences is a substantially revised edition of the former Penguin Dictionary of Botany. To take into account of the rapid developments in the fields of taxonomy, biotechnology and laboratory techniques, it contains not only over 600 new entries, but also an extensive re-working of many definitions. In addition to adopting the Five Kingdoms calssification system, the dictionary contains: new information on genetics and biotechnology; up-to-date entries on DNA technology in horticulture and agriculture; descriptions of new investigative techniques; expanded coverage of bacteria and viruses; cross-referencing for ease of access to information; helpful charts and diagrams. This new dictionary is an invaluable reference both for students and the interested layperson seeking explanations of scientific terms that are currently very much in the news.
