ATCG - Heukels Flora in DNA
Until now, biological specimens were identified using morphological features like shape, size and color. The arrival of DNA research changed this identification method and the way we order plants. It also made a database possible that can identify every biological specie on earth.
This book reduces the description of plants to four letters. How will this change the way we look at plants?
The plants and their order are taken from: Heukels’ Flora van Nederland, this is thé book about the Dutch flora and describes the approximate 2000 species in Holland.
