|Summary:||Monocotyledons (monocots) comprise only one fourth of all flowering plant species, but economically and ecologically they are crucial. Moncots include some of the most valuable plant species to humanity, in families such as the grasses and palms, and numerous monocot species have great ornamental value due to their spectacular flowers or characteristic structural features. Monocot species occur in arctic regions, wet tropical forests, and deserts, and have a wide range of life forms, including floating and rooted aquatic plants, geophytes, epiphytes, and lianas. Diversity, Phylogeny, and Evolution in the Monocotyledons includes reviews and reports of current research by the world's leading specialists.|
