This glossary provides definitions and illustrations of over 2400 terms used to describe and classify vascular plants. The majority of terms refer to structural parts of plants visible to the naked eye or with a low power hand lens. The book is divided into two major sections: a glossary without illustrations and a set of labeled illustrations without definitions, requiring one to flip back and forth between sections for both. The illustrations are simple but effective, and all of the terms identified in the illustrations are well defined in the glossary. I found the combination to be an effective and efficient way to accomplish the authors' goals.
