The first new handbook of seed testing and taxonomy in more than 50
years, Seed Purity and Taxonomy replaces The Handbook of
Seed Testing as the most complete and up-to-date resource of
information available on seed identification and seed taxonomy.
Seed Purity and Taxonomy contains a comprehensive listing of
seeds along with approximately 3,000 black-and-white drawings,
photographs, and computer-scanned images of species most likely to be
encountered in seed testing laboratories in North America. Internal
morphological features of different family groups are also included.
These images are complemented with detailed descriptions and numerous
dichotomous keys that will help in making definitive identifications.
