Müller-Wille, Staffan

The term botany derives from the Greek botánē (“herb”). The Graeco-Roman medical writer Galen calls people who forage for medicinal and other plants and sell them in local markets botanikoí (Thrasybulus 14,9). The Latinized term botanicus became increasingly current in the Renaissance, after being

Chipman, Leigh

Botany has only a limited presence in classical Islamicate culture. A systematic knowledge of plants, as evidenced first in philological works, derives from references in pre-Islamic poetry to desert flora, mainly in the nasīb (amatory prologue) and raḥīl (camel travel) sections of the qaṣīda, and

Hünemörder, Christian (Hamburg)

[German version] The term was introduced as early as 1663 by Schorer as Botanic oder Kräuterwissenschaft (botany or herbal science), following botanik-́e (sc. epist-́emē) and Neo-Latin botanica (sc. scientia) [32] and is encountered in the limited sense of a plant system in 1694 in the title of the

van Steenis

The mountain flora of Java constitutes a unique natural heritage of Indonesia and indeed of the whole world. The most informative and most beautifully illustrated book ever written on this rich resource is doubtlessly The Mountain Flora of Java written by the late renowned Dutch biologist C.G.G.J. van Steenis, with unsurpassed paint drawings of 456 flowering plant species by Amir Hamzah and Moehamad Toha. The first edition from 1972 was sold out fairly soon. Brill is therefore proud to publish this edition of this seminal work at this point in time.

There are three very good reasons to reprint the Mountain Flora both in English and in the Indonesian language.
• First of all there is the importance of this flora for biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of the vulnerable mountain ecosystems of Java.
• Secondly, the unique style and quality of the 456 plant portraits by Amir Hamzah and Moehamad Toha.
• Thirdly there is the science, explaining and interpreting the rich botanical diversity in the mountains of Java.

Although written over 40 years ago Van Steenis’ approach to the study of botany can still serve as an example and inspiration for young botanists, conservationists and policy makers.

. His compatriot, C â ndido de Azevedo Mendes, S.J. (1874–1943) focused his research on butterflies. Finally, in Hungary Xaver Ferenc Speiser, S.J. (1854–1933) through the course of his career studied 9,500 species of coleoptera. Historically, botany also attracted the attention of European Jesuits

Thousand Sensitive Plants On the 14th of July 1688, the medical student Johannes David Mauchart (1669-1726) engaged in a botanical disputation ‎on the nature of the sensitive plant, chaired by Rudolf Jakob Camerarius (1665-1721), professor of botany at the University of Tübingen. The event was recorded in

Pines, 2nd revised edition

Drawings and Descriptions of the Genus Pinus

Aljos Farjon

There has been a steady demand for the first edition of the conifer book PINES, which sold out in 2002. Therefore, a second edition, which is a modest update, was written. The book PINES was never an attempt at monograph in the taxonomic sense. Rather it was an overview with line drawings of the commonly known species of pines, giving concise but essential information on identification, distribution and ecology. Introductory texts explained botanical characteristics of pines and a chapter on classification, one on phylogeny and biogeography, and a glossary, index and short bibliography completed the book. This scope and structure have been maintained in the second edition. It was necessary to make several taxonomic changes, to add or omit a few species, present a new chapter on phylogeny and classification and amend or correct, even expand, some of the information given in the first edition, especially in the species accounts. Conservation aspects have been added to species accounts in a concise format, following IUCN evaluations. The author has maintained the original drawings and made amendments only to correct errors; drawings for additional species have been added in the same style. The book contains a total of 92 drawings and 103 distribution maps. With these amendments the information should have been updated to a satisfactory level, without altering the original format and scope.
