About this book

The presence of particular plant species can be used to assess the origin of a wood or a hedge, to indicate human intervention or to illustrate whether a soil is acidic, basic, dry, wet, fertile, infertile or possibly contaminated with heavy metals.

This book contains details of 85 species of wild plants found in Britain, with simple botanical descriptions, origins of their names, their environmental associations and information about present-day and historic uses.
