This revised edition of Volume II of the Anatomy of the Dicotyledons completes the general introduction to plant anatomy provided by this established botanical reference work. In addition to a comprehensive discussion of wood structure and other topics (see table of contents), Volume II includes a revised version of Takhtajan's taxonomic system for the Dicotyledons, which will be used as the basis for family descriptions in future volumes.
