Gainesville, FL: Division of Plant Industry, 1994. 
Quarto, softbound (sllick, illus. white wrappers), x + 1114 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner embossed stamps. From Foreword: The Diseases and Disorders of Plants in Florida represents an authoritative, comprehensive compilation of diseases and disorders of plants known to occur in the State of Florida. Senior author, Dr. S. A. Sal Alfieri, Jr., with important assistance from Drs. K. R. Langdon, J. W. Kimbrough, N. E. El-Gholl, and C. Wehlburg, spent countless hours revising the 1984 Index of Plant Diseases in Florida into this greatly expanded publication...Florida, with its subtropical/tropical climate and wide variety of flora, provides a favorable enviornment for a broad spectrum of plant diseases. The cataloging of this information is important to diagnostic and research plant pathologists as well as horticulturists and county extension specialists, concerning the availability of a ready reference of disease/host occurrences.

Their work has resulted in the open-ended series Icones, or illustrations, documenting Peru's rich natural heritage of orchids. To date they have published 800 illustrations, including more than 150 new distribution records and more than 100 new species from Peru.

Newton: David & Charles, (1979). 
Royal octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 144 pp. Near-Fine, with neat former-owner stamp, in a Fine dust jacket. From jacket: The first practical guide to tree surgery reflects a growing concern for the future of one of mankind's most precious assets....Aimed primarily at those studying, practising, supervising or managing tree surgery operations, this detailed survey is of use too to allied professionals, and of interest to tree owners in general who wish to understand the principles of securing their trees so that they can inelligently employ others. Peter Bridgeman, the first ever full-time lecturer in arboriculture in the United Kingdom...advises that the tree surgeon, before commencing work, must decide on the needs and the best methods of operation, and the body of his book deals with the objectives behind various actions as well as how best to perform them. Early chapters provide an appreciation of tree growth, the law, education and the safety aspects of tree surger. Tools, equipment, materials and chemicals used are also covered in some depth. The final chapters look at contract tree work and show how trees can be protected on development sites. Illustrated with over 40 monochrome photographs and 30 line drawings, Tree Surgery is a much-needed guide to a vitally important topic.
