This famous book on botany was published for the first time in 1894 by Eduard Strasburger and his co-workers. The present edition is based on a translation of the 36th edition of the German "Strasburger" and contains additional contributions by renowned experts in the field.
The "Strasburger" comprises a highly appealing and holistic approach to the structure, the systematics and evolution, the functioning, and ecology of plants. The book covers 14 chapters bundled into four main sections:
(i) Molecular and morphological structure of plants and cells
(ii) Physiology and metabolism
(iii) Evolution and systematics of plants
