Part of the The Families and Genera of Vascular Plants series
This volume covers theorders Boraginales, Garryales and Solanales (except Convolvulaceae) of theLamiids (Asterids I) as well as three unplaced families of that clade, i.e. Vahliaceae, Icacinaceae and Metteniusaceae, and the orders Aquifoliales,Escalloniales, Bruniales, Dipsacales and Paracryphiales of the Campanulids(Asterids II).
It is the first of two final volumes to (almost) complete thetreatment of the Asterids, which started with Vol.
VI (Cornales, Ericales,2004) and continued with Vol.
VII (Lamiales, 2004) and Vol. VIII (Asterales,2007). The present volume provides descriptions for 35 families and altogether340 genera, including three genera of somewhat uncertain family affiliation.
Itprovides identification keys for families within orders and for all generawithin families, and also discusses probable phylogenetic relationships.
Thewealth of information contained in this volume makes it an indispensable sourcefor all those working in pure and applied plant sciences.
