The majority of the best books on Umbelliferae I consulted in 1998 while compiling this database were from the 1970's. This period was a boon for science. The information contained in them is obviously still relevant regards descriptions and previous uses of Umbels since the dawn of time. However, taxonomy is in flux due to modern germplasm techniques of categorising plants, and many of the species have new agricultural and scientific uses, so I would invite you to check the links provided for each species. When asking for permission to utilise the botanical data contained, I received one reply from the BSBI stating I could use a few pictures from Tutins.
