From Kirkus Reviews:

A splendid addition to the ``Eyewitness Visual Dictionary'' series, with hundreds of outstanding color photos and drawings, all extensively labeled. Beginning with a discussion of characteristics of the plant kingdom, this logically organized volume presents plantlike nonplants (fungi, lichens, algae) and then proceeds up the phyla: liverworts and mosses; horsetails, club mosses and ferns; gymnosperms and angiosperms. Plant parts and processes (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, pollination, photosynthesis) are then discussed in greater detail; information on classification concludes the book. Though the text is technical, almost every aspect is illustrated, and each term and topic is detailed in the index. Visually beautiful and unusually complete: an excellent choice for reference and circulation, made especially accessible by index's more than 3,000 entries. (Nonfiction. 10+) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- ``Visual'' is the operative word. Lush illustrations are organized under categories to explain types, structures, and functions of spe cies within the plant world. Full-color displays cover topics such as fungi and lichens, gymno sperms, roots, leaves, fertilization, dryland plants, etc. Each section begins with a general overview; extending and complementing that basic description are carefully labelled illustra tions and photographs. The specialized botani cal vocabulary is not watered down, and the photographs effectively illustrate each term. This is not a dictionary for novices, since the explanations are not extensive enough to in form fully the uninitiated and there is no glos sary. Still, the striking illustrations could easily stand alone for browsers. --Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, VA
