Overview

Published in five volumes, Flora Europaea is the definitive account of the flowering plants, ferns and fern- allies of Europe. This new edition of Volume 1 brings the treatment of the first 79 families up to date. Keys and descriptions have been extensively revised, and many taxa new to Europe, or to science, have been incorporated, whilst others have been relegated to synonymy. In this new edition, all synonyms are cited in the text. The Appendices have been thoroughly revised, and information on geographical distribution critically edited to give an authoritative summary of species occurrence throughout Europe.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of the hardback: 'The book is a model of concise writing. It gives the latest information about the taxonomy of most European vascular plants. It will be used extensively by botanists, professional and amateur in many parts of the world.' Science

Review of the hardback: 'The first volume of Flora Europaea is a splendid example of international teamwork under the technical guidance of an effectively organised national group. This plan has proved to be efficient and satisfactory. The wise self-restraint of the editors in putting their goals within humanly reachable distance, and in frankly stating the limitations of the undertaking have resulted for the first time in the production of an extremely useful European Flora.' Taxon (Netherlands)
