The English-Spanish Dictionary of Plant Biology has been written to fill a need for increased communication between English and Spanish speaking people who are working in or are being affected by the many sub-fields of plant biology. Its general purpose is to aid, stimulate, and facilitate a two-way flow of information and understanding between the peoples of North, South, and Central America in an era of economic and environmental interdependence. The specific purpose is to provide a representative selection from the huge vocabulary of plant biology for those who work in the field or in laboratories, including botanical researchers, students, agriculturists, conservationists, communicators, translators, educators, and interpreters. The extensive range of the subject has meant that the authors could not aim at completeness, nevertheless, care was taken to obtain a proportionate selection of terms from all areas of plant biology. Included are plant-related terms from the fields of botany, ecology, genetics, taxonomy, oceanology, microbiology, physiology, cytology, marine biology, forestry, silviculture, horticulture, anatomy, organology, phytopathology, agriculture, biochemistry, paleobotany, phenology, photobotany, phycology, systematics phytology, phytogeography, phytochemistry, phytosociology, morphology, pomology, and ethnobotany. Because of the immensity of the field of plant biology, the problem of how to present specialized professional terminology and still provide a useable bridge between language and culture, was a difficult problem to solve. The authors addressed this issue by a decision to be more inclusive in their choices. The range of entries and expressions, while not always strictly “scientific terms,” are frequently encountered in biological texts, professional journals, and in field activities.
