On 400 pages, the author gives a comprehensive survey not only of seed anatomy, including shape, size, weight and colouring of seeds, but also treats the very variable surface structures, seed and embryo proportions and relations, their nutritive tissues and the manifold reserve materials. She furthermore refers to the function of the seed coat and the advantages of sculpturing, as well as to the secretory structures in the seed, the vascularization and the passage of the nutrients. This excellent work is an encyclopedic reference indispensable for anybody who is interested in seeds.
