About this book

Language: Italian

The flora of Sardinia is characterized by its diversity compared to other regions of Italy and the Mediterranean. It is an ancient flora, which evolved on the spot, in part distinct and the rest common to that of the neighboring island of Corsica. This fourth volume of the Flora dell'Isola di Sardegna continues the work that intends to make an inventory of the species so far discovered. At the end, the Flora has the necessary nomenclatural references, the morphological and biological chorology, and other essential information on the ecology of the species. The analytical keys and the rich iconography aim to make the recognition of species easier. The book is a compendium of the many published studies on the flora of the island and of original data collected by the author in the field and from materials stored in herbaria. In general, the information is collected in the taxonomic scheme in his time (1977-1991) followed by researchers from the Universities of Florence and Sassari for the endemic species of Sardinia.

Volume 4 covers the following groups: Apiaceae, Gentianaceae, Apocynaceae, Solanaceae, Convolvulaceae, Cuscutaceae, Menyanthaceae, Boraginaceae, Verbenaceae, Lamiaceae, Callitrichaceae, Plantaginaceae, Buddlejaceae, Oleaceae, Scrophulariaceae, Globularlaceae, Myoporaceae, Orobanchaceae, Acanthaceae, Bignoniaceae, Lentibulariaceae, Campanulaceae, and Rubiaceae.

Summary in Italian:
La flora della Sardegna si caratterizza per la sua diversità rispetto ad altre regioni d´Italia e del mediterraneo. Si tratta di una flora antica, evolutasi in loco, in parte distinta e per il resto comune a quella della vicina isola di Corsica.

Il primo volume della Flora dell´Isola di Sardegna rappresenta l´inizio di un´opera che intende procedere al censimento delle specie fin qui rilevate, favorire il loro riconoscimento, segnalare i casi ancora aperti o dubbi. Allo scopo la "Flora" presenta i necessari riferimenti nomenclaturali, i caratteri morfologici e biologici, le informazioni essenziali sulla corologia e l´ecologia della specie. Le chiavi analitiche e il ricco corredo iconografico mirano a rendere agevole il riconoscimento delle specie.

L´opera è il compendio dei molti studi pubblicati sulla flora dell´isola e di elementi, anche originali, raccolti dall´autore in campo e sui materiali conservati negli erbari. In linea generale le informazioni sono raccolte nello schema tassonomico a suo tempo (1977-1991) seguito da ricercatori delle Università di Firenze e di Sassari per le specie endemiche della Sardegna.
