About this book

Because of its pivotal geographical position and climatic diversity, as well as the effects over time of human activity, Greece is a botanical kaleidoscope, an evolutionary engine generating vegetational diversity unique in Europe. Considerable endemism is therefore to be expected. Because they are usually in small, fragmented populations, endemic plants are often the most vulnerable. This magnificent book, the first of three planned volumes describing, illustrating and distribution mapping the Greek endemic flora, will therefore be of vital importance. Excellent colour plates by Bent Johnsen illustrating almost all the families are complemented by a scientifically rigorous text. A botanical introduction describes the history, geography and climate of the region.
