About this book

Flora of the Maltese Islands, Volume 1 is the first book of a series of four volumes regarding the wild plants of the archipelago of the small Maltese Islands in the central Mediterranean region. This first volume contains information on the islands' geology, climate and soil, and also about the origins of the flora. There is also information on the habitats and on the endemic and sub-endemic plants, and general information about plants including how plants survive the dry season, how they disperse their seeds, pollination, fire and plants, photosynthesis and the water cycle. Flora of the Maltese Islands, Volume 1 can be regarded both as an informative book on plants and a guide to the wild plants of the Maltese Islands.

Please note: the author originally self-published these four volumes as a 3-volume hardback set, which is now out of print. Compared to the original hardback print, the author has abbreviated the contents and put only 2 or 3 pictures of each plant described in this paperback reprint, but otherwise the material covered is largely the same. Due to size constraints during the layout the author had to spread the material out over four instead of three volumes.
