As our understanding of plant evolutionary relationships increases it is important to provide useful and practical resources that help utilise and explain the resulting classification systems. The Gymnosperms Handbook is the second in the series of practical handbooks to be published by Plant Gateway. This work aims to provide a concise introduction to identifying extant gymnosperms of the world. The Gymnosperm Handbook is a practical teaching and identification guide, as well as, a useful reference work to the world's gymnosperms designed for both specialists and non-specialists and from beginner to expert. The book contains: (i) descriptions of all gymnosperm families; (ii) morphological notes for all currently recognised genera; (iii) practical keys to genera for all families; and (iv) over 160 images and illustrations.
