About this book

Language: French

There are 122 species of sedges in France. These species occupy a very wide variety of environments from alpine grasslands to coastal sands, passing through limestone hillsides, forest environments, peat bogs and wetlands. Due to their well-marked ecological requirements, certain sedges are very useful for the characterization of plant communities (indicator species for phytosociologists). These plants, which easily go unnoticed by the non-specialist, are known to be difficult to identify.

This book, intended as a field guide, deals with all of these 122 species of sedge found in France and offers botanists new tools to get to know them better, including illustrated identification keys, tables of morphological criteria to distinguish close species, detailed monographs with a distribution map (with levels of abundance by department), numerous photographs, and a plate illustrated by two renowned botanist illustrators (Robert Portal and Juan Luis Castillo).

Summary in French:
Les laîches comptent 122 espèces en France. Ces espèces occupent une très grande diversité de milieux depuis les pelouses alpines, jusqu’aux sables littoraux, en passant par les coteaux calcaires, les milieux forestiers, les tourbières et les zones humides. En raison de leurs exigences écologiques bien marquées, certaines laîches sont très utiles pour la caractérisation des groupements végétaux (espèces indicatrices pour les phytosociologues). Ces plantes qui passent facilement inaperçues aux yeux du non spécialiste, sont réputées difficiles à identifier.

Cet ouvrage traite de toutes les espèces présentes en France (122 espèces) et offre aux botanistes des outils inédits pour mieux les connaître : clés d’identification illustrées, tableaux de critères morphologiques pour distinguer les espèces proches, des monographies détaillées avec carte de répartition (avec niveaux d’abondance par département), de nombreuses photographies, une planche illustrée par deux illustrateurs botanistes réputés (Robert Portal et Juan Luis Castillo).
