The aim of the monograph of the Umbelliferae of France was to take stock of the knowledge of all the species (indigenous or naturalized) extant in that country. It required a pluridisciplinary approach which led to a long-term study resulting in a five-volume work. This long work allows for comparisons of genera within the family and may lead to a better understanding of their relationships. The following fields are covered: life-cycle of plants, reproductive biology, biological functions of organs, reproductive strategies, ecotypes, biogeography (Atlantic speciation), phytochemistry and chemotypes, taxonomy and complexity, and evolution.
