A fine piece of work 11 décembre 2010
Par Dr.Science - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
First: This is a fine piece piece of work. Eckenwalder is known and respected throughout North America for his work with conifers, and has devoted many years to the preparation of this, his masterwork. The introductory chapters, accounting for 68 of 720 pages, are especially useful. The chapters on classification and names make a great primer on taxonomy for lay audiences. The chapters on habitat and morphology present excellent information, some of it never before published, on conifer botany. The bulk of the book, pages 69 to 631, addresses the families, genera, and species of conifers. Pretty good keys are presented to enable easy identification. The treatment of each taxon consists of two or three paragraphs that contain information needed for an accurate identification, followed by tidbits on subjects like ecology, uses, etc., but there is no systematic approach to this information. There are a few drawings and maps, many black-and-white photographs, and one section with 65 glossy color photos.

Second: Eckenwalder is a "lumper" and this volume identifies only 550 conifer species. This is 65 species less than in Farjon's superb A Handbook of the World's Conifers, and 100 species less than are recognized by many taxonomists. Each species is treated in rather cursory manner, and in general there is little information on any subject other than identification by means of morphology, which means that you don't actually learn much about these species - their ecology, their importance to people, and their evolution and history remain pretty much a secret. For this reason I am annoyed by the book's subtitle, "A Complete Reference;" it's just not true. I would have subtitled it "a guide to identification" because, for most taxa, that is this volume's primary strength. The black-and-white photographs are mostly not well reproduced and add little to the substance of the book, which is regrettable but probably helped to maintain a reasonable price.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this book for any one who is mainly interested in being able to identify the sort of trees that you are most likely to find in an arboretum. If you are interested in a general introduction to conifers as a group, you would be more happy with another Timber Press publication, A Natural History of Conifers. If you want to know more about the history, ecology, and uses of conifers, you are better off buying books about the species or region that interests you, or else coming up with the dough to purchase A Handbook of the World's Conifers, which addresses these subjects.

for the layman or the expert 6 février 2010
Par Charles Wright - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'm tremendously impressed by this book. The author is clearly trying to help the reader understand conifers, whether that reader is an expert or simply somebody who wants to know more about a particular species. All the scholarship and technical detail one could wish is there, presented in a clear style with a bit of the author's personality as a bonus. This seems to me clearly the book to get for complete information on all of the world's conifers.

beautiful reference guide 30 mars 2014

This is at least the fourth time I've been asked to comment on this book and its shipping. (Might check your system.)
This is a truly beautiful book. The sellers did an excellent job on shipping. As I live in an area swamped by foresters, I suspect many will be jealous that I have this work.
The sellers did a a great job. The book is truly beautiful on its own. It is a terrific refence book and I'm quite pleased to own it as a reference.
My thanks to the sellers.

For serious conifer experts 14 juillet 2013
Par jrich - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Love this book, it is for serious conifer experts and has some of the most thorough descriptions that I have found. The only negative is there are no colored photos-only black and white-but still very good. Also includes all of the rarest and newest conifers.

Amazing conifer's book 14 janvier 2012
Par Je Suis Morrisey - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is the best taxonomic book about conifers that I have seen at 2012. It explains with many details every taxonomic idea with property and gives the most important and basic information for the identification of every conifer taxa. It explains widely the classification of families and genera using morphological and genetical characters.
