Inside this Book – The Index of English names, technical terms, &c., which formed Part III of former editions, is now incorporated with the list of genera, so that the work forms one dictionary from end to end, with the exception of the key to the families at the end of the book. All the genera of Bentham- Hooker, Engler-Prantl, and Linnaeus are now included, as well as all given in the Index Kewensis and Supplements (except many synonyms), together with a large number published since the last Supplement, and which, by the kindness of the Director of Ke\v, I have been able to obtain from the MS lists kept at Kew. The most recent of these are given in a little Supplement at the end of the main dictionary, and I hope to bring this supplement up to date at intervals during the currency of the edition, adding the entries later to the body of the work so far as the padding will allow. Besides the genera, all families and higher divisions are also included.
Inside this book –A dictionary of the flowering plants and ferns PDF Book by John Christopher Willis – The name of the genus is followed by that of the family to which it belongs, and after this is often a number (in brackets) indicating the section of the family, thus Acacia belongs to Subfamily I and Tribe 2 of Leguminosae. The general plan upon which the book has been con- structed, and the necessity for condensation, render it essential, if the full advantage is to be derived from its use, that the student should refer to the family as well as the genus. There he will find the important general characters possessed by its members, and should examine the genus to see in what it agrees, and in what it disagrees, with these. A further reference to the classification given at the end of the article upon the family will point out the special characters to be looked for in the genus as a member of some particular sub-family or tribe.
