"Following on the successes of two previous dictionary projects, the CRC World Dictionary of Plant Names and the CRC World Dictionary of the Grasses, Umberto Quattrocchi has undertaken this dictionary of economically important plants ... He has done for these plants what was so admirably done in his other works-brought the vast and scattered literature on plant names, and in this case, too, their uses, into coherent order so that the inquisitive scholar can get a foothold."--The Foreword, Donald H. Pfister, Harvard University and Harvard University Herbaria, Cambridge, Massachusetts T..
