This handy pocket-sized book is a must for all non-package holiday travellers to Cyprus. Fitting ideally into a backpack or pocket, it contains a mountain of information not only about the diversity of wild flowers in Cyprus but their habitats and demeanour. Against a background of the history of the island Sfikas relates the introduction of humans to Cyprus and their effects on the ecology and geology.
The book contains geological maps, colour charts, plant keys and a glossary for plant identification suitable for the amateur or botanist. The photographs are sharp and well presented. It is definitely NOT a boring book and even for the non botanist it is a delight to read.
Well worth having on the bookshelf.
