About this book

The monograph covers every aspect presently known about alpine hawkweeds in Britain, including their identification, locations and conservation in an attempt to promote renewed interest in them. Their history and their earliest discoveries by the pioneer collectors dating from 1688 to the present day are covered. Their distribution with maps, gazetteer, habitats, ecology, biology, origins, cultivation, conservation status and details of relevant herbarium collections are also provided. A comprehensive illustrated chapter explains their characters, and guides for their distinction from related plants. Detailed keys are given. Fully illustrated, detailed, diagnostic accounts are given for each of the 39 taxa with synonomy, in a format designed to assist both professional and amateur botanists in their identification.
