The theory, methodology, technology, and achievements of research on botanical
gardens worldwide are for the first time systematically reviewed and
summarized, and form the foundation of Botanical Garden Science,
PHYTOHORTOLOGY. Chapters 1-8, as Part One, are the “General Introduction and
Fundamental Theories and Principles of Botanical Garden Science,
PHYTOHORTOLOGY,” and Chapters 9-11, as Part Two, are the text for “Individual
Botanical Gardens.” Major achievements in botanical gardens, including
research on plant introduction and acclimatization, economic plants, and
environmental plants, were presented in this book. Principles and methods for
plant conservation in botanical gardens were suggested. Based on the
achievements of the authors’ studies of innovations in concepts, theories and
practice on plant introduction and acclimatization, ex-situ conservation and
stress cultivation of medicinal plants, and plant diversity conservation and
utilization in cities were presented. Owing to the importance of
visualization, more than 2,000 pictures were selected for this book to show
and transfer the information, thought, feelings, and inspiration that could
not be expressed by words and text alone. In addition, there are introductions
to more than 200 individual botanical gardens all over the world in order to
allow readers to easily recognize those botanical gardens, and to deepen their
feelings and understanding as well as to create the thought leap in their
minds. Many of those pictures were especially provided by botanical gardens
both domestic and abroad. This book is appropriate for readers including those
who work in botanical gardens, on plant conservation, for landscape and
scenery areas and natural protected land, on city construction, on landscape
art and architecture, in gardening and landscaping, on education, and policy
makers and administration leaders. This English version is translated from the
Chinese version published in 2005.
