About this book

Covers Europe, the Atlantic Islands, Africa, the Islands of the Western Indian Ocean, South West Asia and the Middle East. Sites have been selected partly on the basis of floristic statistics, which are given in the format of a Data Sheet. These sheets are accompanied by a short outline of the regional context, details of relevant additional sites and reference works. The prime aim of this work is to highlight areas of botanical importance in the hope that they will receive the attention necessary to ensure their conservation. An important and highly informative text.
