This book is designed to enable students of botany to gain some knowledge of the relationships between families of plants. The text of each of the 100 plant families described is in two parts. The first part gives the general characteristics of the family, mentions some of the principal economic and ornamental plants and includes a section on classification. The second part describes in detail a typical representative of the family, as far as possible a plant which is common in the wild or in cultivation and therefore easily obtainable. In this new edition there is a larger page-size, and also a different layout of the text. In addition, a considerable number of illustrations have been redrawn and many more added, including drawings of whole plants. Alterations to the text include extensive revision of the introduction, an increase in the number of comparative tables, and the addition of a table of family characters.

Biologists searching for a resource that explores all of the exciting changes that have occurred recently in the field will turn to this eighth edition. It offers insight into the multidisciplinary nature of the field, presenting a sound historical base, up-to-date coverage, and a look at the latest controversies. The authors evaluate conflicting theories and provide a reasoned judgment as to which is preferable. In a new chapter the authors examine marine biogeography, so that biologists can compare and analyze the data, patterns and problems arising from continental, marine and island biogeography.

First published in 1959 and updated in 1967, Taxonomy of Flowering Plants was created to provide a factual and simplified account of basic principles needed by beginning students in a course in taxonomy together with illustrated descriptions of more than a hundred families of flowering plants representative of the North American flora. The text assumes that the students have had some introduction to plant science. It is intended for undergraduate students in the study of agronomy, range management, forestry, wildlife management and conservation. The text is divided into three parts: Part I, dealing with historical and theoretical aspects and with terminology and morphology; Part II, dealing with orders and families of monocotyledons; and Part III, dealing with orders and families of dicotyledons. Dr. Cedric Lambert "Ted" Porter (1905 - 2000) completed his B.S. and M.S. at the University of Michigan. He became Professor of Botany (1929-1943) at the University of Wyoming. In 1937 he became assistant curator of the Rocky Mountain Herbarium and in 1943 he became, and was, Curator until his retirement in 1968. Porter published more than 40 scientific papers, "Spring Flora of Southeastern Wyoming," and eight fascicles of "A Flora of Wyoming" (ferns and fern allies, gymnosperms, angiosperms: monocots, dicots through Fumariaceae; Englerian system). In 1951 a distinctive sagebrush, endemic to the Wind River Basin, Wyoming, discovered by Porter was named in his honor by Arthur Cronquist: Artemisia porteri.
