About this book

Some 28 miles south-west of the Cornish mainland lie the beautiful isles of Scilly, an archipelago of 150 small, rocky islands. Only 5 are inhabited and 40 have some higher vegetation. Surrounded by the sea and washed by the Gulf Stream the climate is mild, supporting a unique flora of both native and alien plants.

This new account brings the record up to date since Lousley's 1971 flora. It covers nearly 1,000 species, both native and introduced, with distribution maps and many photographs.
