This paintings, released in volumes, includes descriptions of the wooden and bark anatomies of 3000 dicotyledonous crops of one hundred twenty households, highlighting the anatomical and phylogenetic variety of dicotyledonous vegetation 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 varieties of the temperate quarter alongside altitudinal gradients from the lowland on the Mediterranean coast to the alpine sector in Western Europe. the worldwide point of view of the findings is underlined by way of the research of 500 species from the Caucasus, the Rocky Mountains and Andes, the subtropical region at the Canary Islands, the arid zones within the Sahara, in Eurasia, Arabia and Southwest North the USA, and the boreal and arctic zones in Eurasia and Canada.

The presence of annual jewelry in all lifestyles kinds demonstrates that herbs and dwarf shrubs are a very good instrument for the reconstruction of annual biomass construction and the interannual dynamic of plant institutions. the typical precept of the anatomical expression of secondary progress is a key think about realizing evolution and version techniques in all lifestyles kinds, from the two cm tall whitlow grass (Draba arctica) within the arctic to the forty m tall beech (Fagus sylvatica) in crucial ecu controlled forests.
