Solo su ordinazione. Loran Whitelock’s update to his popular The Cycads, available as a 2-volume set at a discounted price. Volume 1 covers Asia and Australia, Volume 2 Africa and the Americas. There are few plants, with the possible exception of palms, that can rival cycads for variety of foliage, size, and form. In spite of such diversity, however, cycads represent an ancient lineage whose fossil history extends over 200 million years. Indeed, the Jurassic period is known as the Age of Cycads as well as the Age of Dinosaurs. Cycads have been called the reptiles of the plant world because although they have a long history, they continue to exist, though precariously, in remarkable variety with 10 genera and close to 350 species.
