A BOTANICAL NIGHTMARE collects a half-dozen Victorian weird tales featuring "the Green Menace" -- evil plants that entrap, strangle, and leach the blood of their victims. These "six succulent stories of vampiric vegetation" include contributions by H.G. Wells, E. & H. Heron, Phil Robinson, and E. Nesbit, as well as an adventure featuring literature's first psychic detective, Mr. Flaxman Low. Included is an introduction by Series Editor Tom English. A BOTANICAL NIGHTMARE is the first volume in the Literary Vampire Series, edited by Tom English and presenting the early English prose and poetry that helped shape Bram Stoker's DRACULA and create an enduring sub-genre of horror fiction.

Current major interests in this area include the study of higher level phylogenetic relationships and character evolution in the angiosperms, floral evolution, the genetic basis of key floral differences in basal angiosperms, the genetic and genomic consequences of polyploid speciation, conservation genetics of rare plant species, and phylogeography. This book provides a series of papers focused on the developmental genetics of flowering as well as the genetic control of the timing of flowering. Investigation of speciational mechanisms, evolutionary relationships, and character evolution in flowering plants and land plants utilizing a variety of experimental approaches are discussed. The chapters are excellent reviews of the current fast-moving area of research.
* Provides a brief review of genes known to regulate flower development
* Articles emphasize the classic ABC model of flower development

Advances in Botanical Research is a multi-volume publication that brings together reviews by recognized experts on subjects of importance to those involved in botanical research. First published in 1963, Advances in Botanical Research has earned a reputation for excellence in the field for more than thirty years. In 1995, Advances in Botanical Research was merged with Advances in Plant Pathology to provide one comprehensive resource for the plant science community, with equal coverage of plant pathology and botany in both thematic and mixed volumes.
Now edited by J.A. Callow (University of Birmingham, UK), supported by an international Editorial Board, Advances in Botanical Research publishes in-depth and up-to-date reviews on a wide range of topics which will appeal to post-graduates and researchers in plant sciences including botany, plant biochemistry, plant pathology and plant physiology. Eclectic volumes in the serial are supplemented by thematic volumes on such topics as Plant Protein Kinases, and Plant Trichomes.
In 1999, the Institute for Scientific Information released figures showing that Advances in Botanical Research has an Impact Factor of 4.378, placing it 8th in the highly competitive category of Plant Sciences.
