About this book

Language: Italian

A full 35 years after publication of the first edition, the second edition of Flora d'Italia consists of four printed volumes by Sandro Pignatti and a brand new digital flora by Riccardo Guarino and Marco La Rosa with more than 90,000 colour images Organized in a multi-criteria recognition system, including 88,000 photos of Italian flora and explanatory tables, this will be attached to the fourth volume of the work.

This first volume introduces the full work, and covers the Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms and the first part of the Angiosperms, including the basal Angiosperms, Magnolids, Monocotyledons (which in 1982 were in the third volume), and Dicotyledons subdivided into Basal and Central Eudicotyledons.

Systematic ordering follows the hierarchy of Superfamilies, Families, Genera, Species, Subspecies, down to varieties and forms of the same species, each described in the smallest details. Each species is also illustrated by a drawing highlighting the diagnostic details.

Summary in Italian:
Dopo 35 anni dalla prima, vede la luce la seconda edizione di Flora d’Italia che si compone oggi di quattro volumi cartacei di Sandro Pignatti e di una nuovissima Flora digitale realizzata da Riccardo Guarino e Marco La Rosa, con più di 90.000 immagini a colori organizzate in un sistema di riconoscimento a criterio multiplo, comprendente 88.000 foto di flora italiana e tavole esplicative, che sarà allegata al quarto volume dell’opera.

In questo primo volume, presto seguito dagli altri, oltre all’introduzione all’opera completa, vengono prese in esame le Pteridofite, le Gimnosperme e la prima parte delle Angiosperme, comprendente Angiosperme Basali, Magnoliide, Monocotiledoni (che nel 1982 figuravano nel terzo volume), Dicotiledoni suddivise in Eudicotiledoni Basali e Centrali.

L’ordinamento sistematico si spinge, attraverso Superfamiglie, Famiglie, Generi, Specie, Sottospecie, sino alle varietà e alle forme di una stessa specie, ciascuna descritta nei minimi particolari. Ogni specie è inoltre illustrata da un disegno che ne evidenzia i particolari diagnostici.
