About this book

The Flora Europaea presents for the first time a synthesis of all the national and regional Floras of Europe. It is based on a critical review of existing literature and on studies on herbaria and in the field. It aims to be simple as well as authoritative, and should enable the reader to name as far as its subspecies any fern, conifer or flowering plant growing wild or wildly cultivated.

The third volume covers the Dicotyledonous families from Diapensiaceae to Myoporaceae, following the Engler system. Apart from keys and descriptions, information is given on geographical distribution and, where possible, on habitat preference and chromosome number. All names used in current Floras or important monographs are cited in the text or index. The text, in English, uses a limited vocabulary, and there are glossaries of technical terms and Latin equivalents.

Originally published in 1972.

Media reviews

"All botanists will welcome the continued rapid progress of the Flora [...] and we may all be pleased with the result."
- Arthur Cronquist, Quarterly Review of Biology

"Flora Europaea is a triumph of international organisation and co-operation as well as a work of exceptionally high value and importance."
- The Naturalist

"Cette grande entreprise internationale se poursuit de la facon la plus satisfaisante et la haute qualite de cet ouvrage de base, et deja celebre, continue a s'affirmer. La Flora Europaea constitue un monument de science et un exemple de collaboration internationale qui ne savraient se voir assez loues."
- J. L. Monod, La Terre et La Vie
