Practical Plant Identification is an essential guide to identifying flowering plant families (wild or cultivated) in the northern hemisphere.

Details of plant structure and terminology accompany practical keys to identify 318 families into which flowering plants are divided.

Specifically designed for practical use, the keys can easily be worked backwards for checking identifications.

Containing descriptions of families and listings of the genera within, it also includes a section on further identification to generic and specific levels.

A successor to the author's bestselling The Identification of Flowering Plant Families, this guide is updated, and retains the same concise user-friendly approach.

Cullen skillfully leads the reader from restrictive disciplines of older taxonomy, into an era of increasing numbers of plant families defined by DNA analysis.

Aimed primarily at students of botany and horticulture, this is a perfect introduction to plant identification for anyone interested in plant taxonomy.
