This paintings, released in volumes, includes descriptions of the wooden and bark anatomies of 3000 dicotyledonous vegetation of one hundred twenty households, highlighting the anatomical and phylogenetic range of dicotyledonous crops of the Northern Hemisphere. The first volume largely treats households of the Early Angiosperms, Eudicots, center Eudicots and Rosids, whereas the second one concentrates at the Asterids.

Presented in Volume 1 are microsections of the xylem and phloem of herbs, shrubs and timber of 1200 species and eighty five households of assorted existence types of the temperate sector alongside altitudinal gradients from the lowland on the Mediterranean coast to the alpine region in Western Europe. the worldwide standpoint of the findings is underlined by means of the research of 500 species from the Caucasus, the Rocky Mountains and Andes, the subtropical area at the Canary Islands, the arid zones within the Sahara, in Eurasia, Arabia and Southwest North the United States, and the boreal and arctic zones in Eurasia and Canada.

The presence of annual jewelry in all lifestyles types demonstrates that herbs and dwarf shrubs are a good software for the reconstruction of annual biomass construction and the interannual dynamic of plant institutions. the typical precept of the anatomical expression of secondary development is a key think about realizing evolution and version methods in all existence types, from the two cm tall whitlow grass (Draba arctica) within the arctic to the forty m tall beech (Fagus sylvatica) in important ecu controlled forests. The learn opens gigantic fields of analysis for dendrochronology, wooden anatomy, taxonomy and ecology.
