TINY TAXONOMY. Rosetta S. Elkin. Actar, Barcelona, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Actar D/Actar Distribution Inc., New York. 144 pp. with 66 ills. (51 col.). 24 x 16 cm. LC 2016-931208 ISBN 9781940291833 In English.
Publisher's description: Tiny Taxonomy showcases species that are in cultivation or in profusion, but rarely purposefully planted. A grouping of plants is categorized by common traits derived from an evolution towards feature miniaturization, generating another form of classification. Due to the diminutive size of their features, these plants are often over-looked and therefore tend to be under specified. It seems that as the world around us gains complexity and intricacy, our biological world is tending towards monotony. Tiny Taxonomy considers smallness a design opportunity, offering innumerable microcosmic considerations of the leaf form, flower structure, and physical habitat of individual plants.
