Description

Reviews

Translated from the popular 1999 revised German edition, this text describes the temperature, water, fertilizer, and light needs of more than 300 aquarium plants. Artificial lighting--lamp types, color temperatures, and mounting--is discussed in detail and the author provides advice on choosing the right plants for an aquarium. Ecological factors, flower biology and morphology, and reproduction methods receive detailed coverage. The book contains 525 color photographs with nearly all plants depicted with fully developed submerged foliage. Many of the photographs of rare plants were published for the first time in the German edition. Botanists as well as professional and amateur aquarium keepers will find this book indispensable.

"Aquarium Plants is a reliable and excellent reference which is especially recommended to dedicated aquarium hobbyists".--The Bookwatch, November 2002

"The quality of the color photographs is truly outstanding. The detail in the close-up photograhs is excellent. I commend Krieger for their excellent editorial work on this book." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, June 2003

"If growing aquatic plants is one's goal, this book may prove to be just what is needed for success and is the most useful aquarium plant book I have read…A most useful aspect of this work is that truly aquatic species are differentiated from emergent species. This is very important since this may be the most overlooked criterion when it comes to keeping aquatic plants." -- Dan Conklin, Aquarist, The Florida Aquarium, Tampa, Florida, Animal Keepers' Forum, October 2003
