A Guide to Families of Common Flowering Plants in the Philippines
This book is an introduction to the science of plant classification and identification, or plant taxonomy. It defines terms used in describing a flowering plant and its parts and presents the characteristics of families of common flowering plants in the Philippines. For a clearer understanding, descriptions are supplemented by drawings and photographs. Plants commonly found in gardens, parks, and vacant lots are used as examples and are therefore readily available for study. A section is also devoted to the establishment and maintenance of a herbarium.
