About this book

This is the first comprehensive identification guide to the rich Mediterranean flora of the Algarve region of southern Portugal, including the Cape St. Vincent Peninsula National Park, an area of immense botanical importance with numerous endemic and rare species. The Algarve is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe (it receives more than 7 million tourists per annum), and Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Algarve is the essential companion for wildlife tourists, and the first comprehensive easy-to-use identification guide to its wild flowers. Information is provided on where and when to see plants with information on their habitat and vegetation types. In addition rare and unusual plants of the region are highlighted, including orchids and parasitic plants. With over 1000 species descriptions, Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Algarve is abundantly illustrated throughout with over 650 stunning colour photographs, 780 line drawings and distribution maps.
