About this book

Please note: this is a reissue of the New Holland Concise Wild Flower Guide, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.

This beautifully illustrated mini field guide is packed with information on the most common wild flowers of Britain and the near Continent. It covers more than 180 species, all of which are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks that show details of the flowers, leaves and growth habit of the plant. A concise written account covering size, description, habitat, flowering time, distribution and habits appears on the same page. The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, and make Bloomsbury Concise Wild Flower Guide an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home.

It is compact enough to fit in the pocket, yet packed with essential information for the nature enthusiast. To protect it against the elements in the field, Bloomsbury Concise Wild Flower Guide is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing flowers grouped by colour.
