It evolved from a Master's thesis,Common Florida Angiosperm Families (1980; 26 families), which wasincreased to 34 families in the published version, Common FloridaAngiosperm Families, Part 1 (1083). Thirty-six additional familiescomprised Part 2 (1986). The popularity of the series has inspired thisrevised and updated edition combining parts 1 and 2 as a single volumenow containing 73 families and 81 original plates.
