botany book-help me!!!

Post by MrMistery » Tue Nov 14, 2006 11:09 am

I'm currently looking for a botany book. I want it to have a well-made presentation of anatomy and structure in all plants, not just seed plants. i am kinda leening towards this.

does anyone have it? is it good for what i need? or can anyone recommend me another book? I don't mind it being expensive, i just want a good book

That was our assigned book for Intro to Botany (as usual we never even used it as all tests were on the proffesors lectures)
But I read it any ways to further understand and found it very good (I got an A). We did use the accompaning lab manual alot and You also will have online access @www.mhhe.com/botany.

Well, majority this book discuss about seed plants and for spore plants, it's only minority. This book is also good in presenting anatomy and general physiology of seed plants. But for the details, I think this book lacks it.

I usually concern much on the plant biochemistry, the plant metabolism and I can say that this book lacks some of the details in it. I only pay much attention on this chapter only.

@MrMystery,
This is just an introductory text in Botany. You probably need more advanced. But I could copy the contents pages and post them if you would like?

Here is the contents of phyllum covered.

If there is a particular subject you want information on I can send a few paragraphs pm for you to read and decide if this book is for you, and thus save you the $ and trouble of buying it.
