4.0 out of 5 stars The best guide to Mediterranean plants
This is a good book, covering all the species of the Mediterranean coast (most guides just cover a selection of species).
The book is organised by plant family, which may be a drawback for non-botanists, but the colour plates are good enough to track down the right bit of the book to investigate further.
The descriptions themselves are simple and clear, and a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Illustrations deserve better
Marjorie Blamey's illustrations are her usual high standard, it's a shame the same cannot be said for this A & C Blacks publication. The paper is so thin that the print shows through the pages and many have been badly and to closely trimmed. The layout is far from convenient with the illustrations being grouped together in a separate section remote from the descriptive...

5.0 out of 5 stars wild flowers of the med, 30 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wild Flowers of the Mediterranean: A Complete Guide to the Islands and Coastal Regions (Paperback)
A brilliant guide with clear concise text, excellent colour plates and helpful drawings in the margin which aid identification. I have several guides for the Med and this is the one I turn to first. The book is limited however to the details concerning identification/distribution. There are no details about usage of plants - obviously for reasons of space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quickly becoming the standard.., 14 Jan 2012

This review is from: Wild Flowers of the Mediterranean: A Complete Guide to the Islands and Coastal Regions (Paperback)
The book I always have with me when holidaying and walking around the Med'.
A good compromise between a "text heavy" and a picture guide.
If you buy 1 guide, this is it.

This is a very helpful book with comprehensive explanations and illustrations. It will prove very useful in identifying the flora in the south of France where I live.

This review is from: Wild Flowers of the Mediterranean: A Complete Guide to the Islands and Coastal Regions (Paperback)
Beautiful pictures, painstaking labour, very exhaustive, but very old-fashioned setup. But there are very few books in the English language covering that area - possible exception Huxley's two books, which seem to be sold out, and there the colours are not of a high quality. There is definitely a need for one or two new books with good photographs, possibly divided into two areas, west/central and east.
