Helpful as a reference book, but not what I was looking for. A guidebook that breaks down the root words that make up plant names derived from Latin, Greek, etc would be more helpful as a learning guide. It would also be more helpful if it had pictures to accompany some descriptive words, like the words that describe different leaf shapes/structures. If you know of a better book, please let me know.
