Product description

Synopsis

The first ever fully-illustrated, fully-mapped guide to the British and Irish flora. Its restriction to the British Isles alone allows far more detail, more local information, easier identification the inclusion of extensive maps. Including specific details about plants appearing in certain areas and coloured maps designed to make location and identification easy, this book also includes details of local specialities for the Isles of Scilly. Also featured is an illustrated survey of recently disappeared British and Irish plants, some of which may return. With over 2000 detailed colour paintings and more than 800 maps, this is the most extensively illustrated wild flower guide to Britain and Ireland yet. Identification is made easier by coloured, boxed keys to plants in complex or difficult groups. The Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland features information about grasses, which are often omitted in other, shorter books, along with sedges, rushes, horsetails and clubmosses. They all have flowers however, and are therefore included in the book. Ferns, though not strictly speaking flowering plants, are so attractive and popular that they are included too.
