Genera Plantarum ad exemplaria imprimis in herbariis Kewensibus seivata definita

Abstract

THE completion of the “Genera Plantarum” of Messrs. Bentham and Hooker, an event long impatiently desired by all botanists, has been recently effected by the publication of the second and concluding part of the third volume. This great work has required more than five-and-twenty years of assiduous labour, during which the authors have devoted themselves to their formidable task with untiring perseverance, and with a degree of unity both in the plan and the execution of the work which would have been impossible but for their constant daily intercourse, and their relations of intimate personal friendship.

Genera Plantarum ad exemplaria imprimis in herbariis Kewensibus seivata definita.

By G. Bentham J. D. Hooker. 3 vols. (London, 1862-1883.)
