About this book

Designed for outdoor enthusiasts, the Field Guide to the Wild Plants of Oman will also be valued by those with more specialised botanical interests. The short introduction provides an insight into Oman's geography and environmental diversity. The main sections cover 250 common species, and each account is enhanced by fascinating colour photographs which enable quick identification. For ease of use, plants are grouped according to the colour of their most conspicuous feature, usually flowers, with additional sections for trees and grasses. Within each colour group they are organised alphabetically by botanical family.

A short description gives details of appearance, habitat, uses and worldwide distribution. The addition of a glossary of botanical terms, a bibliography and indexes of scientific and vernacular names, make this an invaluable reference for anyone with an interest in the fascinating flora of Oman.
