About this book

This is a handy and easy-to-use field guide covering about 120 wild flower species which are common in Britain and the rest of Europe. Each is illustrated using the author's remarkable photography, while the accompanying text covers information such as ID features, flowering time, distribution, habitat, status, confusion species and interesting facts such as plant uses. This book is as visually impressive as it is useful in the field with many stunning full-page and double-page images to support the authoritative text. The introduction explains the basics of flower forms and their identification. Printed on quality paper, the paperback format with flaps adds to the book's durability in the field and provides built-in page-markers for quick reference.
