Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handbook will provide the student or keen amateur with a clear and reliable means of identifying those plants which grow wild in Ireland. It is a comprehensive re-working of the classic Flora of Ireland; this will be the eighth edition. It has been brought fully up-to-date through incorporating the latest in botanical research and it reflects contemporary and modern approaches to plant classification based on recent advances in genetics.This book is about the higher plants that grow wild and which are commonly naturalized or otherwise encountered in Ireland. It is designed to facilitate their identification and provide background information on their morphology, distribution and rarity and to educate all those interested in recognizing the species of the flora of Ireland.Previous editions of the book have been used by workers outside of the specific field of study of plant identification such as environmental consultants, the general public, students, professional and amateur botanists. There is a genuine demand for a Flora whose subject matter refers explicitly to Ireland while placing that flora in a wider context. Furthermore, a concise flora of a discrete geographical area is of interest internationally to many professional and amateur botanists and gardeners. The book has, is and will be used in student training and on training courses for professionals wishing to improve their skills and for all those needing to improve their levels of botanical expertise.
