Monocotyledons are a major group of flowering plants that have embryos with only one seed leaf. This group comprises four orders and 14 families of plants in freshwater and marine environments. The most populous families are pondweeds and bur-reeds, but others are water-plantains, arrow-grasses, sea-grasses, arums (including Skunk Cabbage), duckweeds, water-meals and cat-tails.

Dr Brayshaw’s finely detailed illustrations and diagnostic keys help identify all species in this book.
