This third edition of the best-selling book by Deni Bown is fully updated and revised, and includes new taxa and advances in research to ensure that it continues to be the go-to book for aroid-enthusiasts. Since the first edition was published in 1988, many new genera and over 1,000 additional species have been described by botanists globally. This expansion of knowledge has stimulated further interest in the plant family both within the scientific community and in the general public. One of the most famous aroids, the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), known for its gigantic size and stench of rotting flesh at blooming stage, has become a botanical superstar! With an expanded and illustrated section on aroids in cultivation, this new edition is the essential handbook for aroid enthusiasts, collectors, botanists and researchers.
