Botanical The Genus Betula: A Taxonomic Revision of Birches

Birches or Betula are among the most attractive and common trees in the landscape and in gardens. The Genus Betula is the first monograph published on  this plant group, the species of which have been notoriously difficult to  identify. Accounts are given of all known birches found in Europe, Asia and  North America, both white and brown barked, and a key for their identification.
An invaluable tool for arboriculturalists and professional and amateur gardeners, and will also appeal to lovers of botanical art.
