The BSBI’s authoritative series of handbooks is intended to help professional botanists and enthusiasts identify some of the more difficult plant groups in the field.

The BSBI handbooks to the flora of Britain and Ireland have become standard botanical field guides, containing identification keys, detailed plant descriptions, useful line drawings showing the main identification characteristics, together with information on habitat and distribution. Chiefly aimed at putting a name to those groups of plants that are notoriously difficult to identify, the series includes field guides on Britain and Ireland’s grasses and on the sedges of Britain and Ireland.
