just published: Arnold Grosscurt’s “Plantengallen”

Over 400 pages, 400 species, 1400 pictures. This book is unique in that most species are discussed and illustrated in much more detail than just the identification characters. It is a book written by someone curious about galls, and capable of conveying that curiosity, not in the last by means of many excellent pictures. The sample page below gives an impression.
