From the point of view plant geography, including various aspects of chorology, one of the prerequisites of a successful large-scale synthesis of this type is an adequate flora covering the area in question, and providing a common language in respect to the delimitation and nomenclature of the taxa to be treated. This essential condition is now fulfilled for Europe by the current volumes of Flora Europaea. This new series of compendium atlas volumes makes available all the distribution maps (1508) so far produced by the Committee for Mapping the Flora of Europe (CMFE) in convenient library editions and in the format and livery of Flora Europaeae. The seven parts published as fasicles by the CMFE and Societas Biologica Fennica Vanamo (Finland) from 1972 to 1986 are here bound in three (see above) handsome volumes. A monumental contribution to the natural history of Europe. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
