It covered all native and long-naturalised flowering plants of the British Isles except for grasses, sedges and rushes in addition to the commoner plants of NW...

3.0 out of 5 stars 88 item errata list
WARNING unless the edition being sold is a reissued version after the first 2006 printing you will be led astray unless you have the 88 item errata list. This was not supplied with my copy (bought some time ago).

This review is from: The Wild Flower Key (Revised Edition) - How to identify wild plants, trees and shrubs in Britain and Ireland (Paperback)
Needed this book to key for wild flowers at Uni, very confusing at first but once you've keyed a few you get the hang of it. Pictures are useful.

Excellent book at a great price. I was also delighted that it had a plastic slip cover too, which makes it evenbetter for taking on field trips.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must, 10 Mar. 2012

This review is from: The Wild Flower Key (Revised Edition) - How to identify wild plants, trees and shrubs in Britain and Ireland (Paperback)
This is a must for every budding botanist. It is the standard (other than Stace of course which is much more complicated and extensive).

3.0 out of 5 stars Too big for a field guide, 5 Nov. 2007
This review is from: The Wild Flower Key (Revised Edition) - How to identify wild plants, trees and shrubs in Britain and Ireland (Paperback)
I hate to spoil the love-in, but at 900g (2lb) this new edition is simply too heavy to be a practical field guide. This book is thicker than the Edinburgh telephone directory and consequently is highly unlikely to find its way into my pocket or backpack when I am off out. This is a pity because there the book has many good features; greater brevity would have made it a hands-down winner. As it is, the old edition is a more realistic prospect if you want pictures, Stace if you don't.
