Flowers of South-west Europe : A Field Guide
This book describes the regions of the Iberian peninsula, one of the richest botanical regions of Europe. Each of the authors travelled widely there and the work includes first-hand information and photographs. The text is divided into two main sections: one describing the regions and the areas in which particular plants may be found and the other concerned with the identification of species by means of keys and short diagnostic descriptions.
