Flora of Great Britain and Ireland
Publication Date 12 Apr 2018
OverviewThis definitive flora provides detailed accounts of the native species, naturalised species, frequent garden escapes and casuals found in the British Isles, including some newly described ones. Full keys and descriptions enable the user to name all plants occurring in the wild and some ornamental trees and shrubs. For the first time, accounts of all the large apomictic genera are included. Each species entry begins with the accepted Latin name, synonyms and English name. A detailed description follows, with the flowering period and chromosome number. Separate descriptions are provided for infraspecific taxa and many hybrids. The status, ecology and distribution (including worldwide distribution) of the taxa are also given. Black and white line drawings illustrate an extensive glossary and illuminate the diagnostic features in several genera. This final volume of five includes historical and taxonomic introductions to the whole project and covers the pteridophytes, gymnosperms and 44 families of angiosperms.
