About this book

Language: French

This is a French translation of A Field Guide to the Flowers of the Alps.

Explore the colourful world of alpine flowers. This practical book will help you make a quick, reliable identification of each plant, with concise descriptions and illustrations for individual plants to enable differentiation from similar species. Flowers can be identified quickly from colour and shape. The notable characters of each plant are clearly highlighted.

Covering 500 species, each with colour photographs, this compact guide is designed for walkers and botanists. For each plant the common name, scientific name, flowering time, plant height, protected status, and distribution (habitat and altitude) are described.

Summary in French:
Peu de contrées en Europe possèdent une flore aussi richement colorée que celle des Alpes. En fait, pour les végétaux croissant au-dessus de la limite de la forêt, il est vital de parvenir à séduire les rares insectes vivant à cette altitude puisque ce sont eux qui assureront la fécondation. C’est donc à eux que l’on doit, indirectement, cette palette de couleurs inégalée.

Dans ce guide, plus de 500 fleurs des Alpes sont traitées : de quoi satisfaire le simple promeneur, le randonneur ou le conquérant avide de sommets, désireux d’identifier une plante commune ou rare. Chaque espèce traitée peut être déterminée avec certitude sans connaissances botaniques préalables grâce à un découpage très simple fondé sur la couleur et la forme de la fleur. L’observation de la photo et la lecture des caractères diagnostiques permettent une identification précise entre des espèces voisines.
