About this book

The Flora of Iraq is the only botanical guide for this region in the Middle East. It enables anyone documenting, studying, or managing Iraq's vast and rich flora to identify the area's vascular cryptogams (plants that do not make seeds) as well as its flowering plants. In addition to detailed taxonomic information, a large amount of supplementary data of general biological and economic interest is provided, as well as notes on vernacular names. Rounding out a series decades in the making, it is a vital contribution to our floral knowledge of Iraq. Volume 5, part 1 covers families Elatinaceae to Sphenocleaceae.
