This paintings, released in volumes, comprises descriptions of the wooden and bark anatomies of 3000 dicotyledonous vegetation of a hundred and twenty households, highlighting the anatomical and phylogenetic range of dicotyledonous vegetation of the Northern Hemisphere. the 1st quantity mostly treats households of the Early Angiosperms, Eudicots, middle Eudicots and Rosids, whereas the second one concentrates at the Asterids.

Presented in Volume 2 are microsections of the xylem and phloem of herbs, shrubs and timber of one thousand species and ca. 35 households of assorted lifestyles varieties of the temperate sector alongside altitudinal gradients from the lowland on the Mediterranean coast to the alpine sector in Western Europe. designated recognition is given to the very assorted relations of Asteraceae. the worldwide viewpoint of the findings is underlined by means of the research of four hundred species from the Caucasus, the Rocky Mountains and Andes, the subtropical quarter at the Canary Islands, the arid zones within the Sahara, in Eurasia, Arabia and Southwest North the United States, New Zealand and the boreal and arctic zones in Eurasia and Canada.

The presence of annual jewelry in all lifestyles varieties demonstrates that herbs and dwarf shrubs are a good instrument for the reconstruction of annual biomass creation and the interannual dynamic of plant institutions. the typical precept of the anatomical expression of secondary progress is a key think about knowing evolution and version approaches in all lifestyles types, from the three cm tall crepide pigmea (Crepis pygmaea) within the alpine sector to the forty m tall ash (Fraxinus excelsior) in valuable eu riparian forests. The learn opens substantial fields of study for dendrochronology, wooden anatomy, taxonomy and ecology.
