Newly updated, Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology, Fourth Edition provides an current, thorough overview of the fundamentals of botany. The topics and chapters are organized in a sequence that is easy to follow, beginning with the most familiar -- structure -- and proceeding to the less familiar -- metabolism -- then finishing with those topics that are probably the least familiar to most beginning students -- genetics, evolution, the diversity of organisms, and ecology. Important Notice: The digital edition of this book is missing some of the images or content found in the physical edition.

As new information is introduced and environmental changes occur, Plant Biology continues to develop and evolve as a science. Updated and revised to keep pace with these developments, the Fifth Edition of Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology provides a modern and comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of botany while retaining the important focus of natural selection, analysis of botanical phenomena, and diversity. Students are first introduced to topics that should be most familiar (plant structure), proceed to those less familiar (plant physiology and development), and conclude with topics that are likely least familiar to the introductory student (genetics, evolution, and ecology). Mauseth is sure to provide the latest material on molecular biology and plant biotechnology in an effort to keep pace with these advancing areas of study. All sections are written to be self-contained allowing for a flexible presentation of course material. Key Features: - Includes new content on molecular biology, plant biotechnology, and the most recent coverage of taxonomy and phylogeny of plants. - Now available with a new electronic laboratory manual. - Plants Do Things Differently boxes help students understand and compare plant biology with human biology. - End-of-chapter study guide includes nearly 50 or more questions in each chapter, urging students to test themselves on the most important points in the chapter. - Alternatives boxes encourage students to think expansively about alternative aspects of plant biology that are more advantageous in certain conditions.

Leah Knight argues that the early modern cultures and cultivation of plants and books depended on each other in historically specific ways. Knight's in-depth readings of sixteenth-century herbals are incorporated in a narrative which establishes the broader context for the interpenetration of plants and writing in the period's cultural practices to illuminate a complex interplay between materials and discourses rarely considered in tandem today.

The Term Systematic Botany Encompasses The Domain Not Only Of The Higher Plants, But Also Of The Lower Plants. Since It Is Not Possible To Treat Adequately The Various Plant-Groups Under A Single Volume, This Edition Is Restricted To A Discussion Of The Angiosperms. It Has Been Designed As A Textbook For The Undergraduate Students (Pass & Honours) Of All The Indian Universities And It Will Be Helpful To Postgraduate Students In Botany As Well As To The Study Of Agriculture And Allied Subjects. The Author Has Abandoned Bentham-Hookers System And Presented A New Scheme Of Angiosperm-Classification. Although The Latter Scheme, Like Any Other Envisaged Before, Has Its Shortcomings, It Represents The Most Probable Natural Relationship Among Flowering Plants.Almost All The Taxa Prevalent In The Indian Flora Have Been Dealt With, Covering 44 Orders And 193 Families. Generally, Each Order Has Been Discussed In The Light Of Phylogeny And With Emphasis On Its General Features, Circum Inter-Relationship, Origin And Means Of Identification Of Various Families (By Bracketed Keys). Those Families Prominent In The Countrys Flora Have Been Described Under Six Or Seven Different Heads, Depending On The Available Information. Though The Inconspicuous Ones Have Not Been Categorised Likewise, One Can Even Find In Them The Array Of Items Under Each Family Being Suitably Treated. Moreover, The Nomenclature Of Plants Have Been Checked And Brought Up-To-Date As Far As Possible. Part One Is An Expose Of Taxonomic Principles, While PartsThree And Four, Deal With The Dicotyledonous And Monocotyledonous Plants Respectively. Under Part Two, There Are Certain Specialised Topics Which Have A Bearing On The Study Of The Systematic Botany Of Angiosperms. A List Of Important Books And Papers Is Inserted At The End Of Each Part. In Brief, The Author Has Made Anattempt To Give A Complete Picture Of Angiosperm Systematics.
