This work on Gentians consists of two volumes. Volume 1, comprising twelve chapters, centres upon the characterization and ecology of the Gentianaceae, with some emphasis on the application of molecular and cytological approaches in relation to taxonomy. Volume 2 is devoted to aspects of biotechnology and their applications.
