About this book

Presents a general account of recording methods and of Glasgow's geology, soils, climate, air and water and growth, followed by a catalogue of some 1500 species with habitat details and dot maps.

"Plentifully illustrated by black-and-white photographs and old maps and prints, also 23 colour plates of maps, habitats and individual plants [...] A most thorough account, drawing on some 15 years of field work, and a sound basis for future research and conservation. Of outstanding interest. This beautifully illustrated local Flora is the culmination of 15 years' work [...] Professor Dickson is always happy to give his opinion on controversial matters and this makes this work all the more readable."
– Douglas McKean
