Summary "Virtually all of the food we eat comes from plants, either directly from such staples as grains, fruits, and vegetables, or indirectly through livestock that rely on plants for fodder; plants also provide us with oxygen, fibers, fuel, and medicine. This third edition of a classic bibliography features nearly 1,000 annotated entries focused on core materials for botanists and plant biologists, organized by topic: Plant Evolution and Paleobotany, Ethnobotany, Ecology, Anatomy, Morphology, and Development, Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Biotechnology, Plant Physiology and Phytochemistry, Systematics and Identification." "In addition, the guide provides expanded coverage of Web sites, plus introductory chapters discuss the study of plants, characteristics of plant biology literature, and the history and people of the field.
