About this book

The Flora Europaea, originally published between 1964 and 1980, explores the synthesis of all the national and regional Floras of Europe. It is based on a critical review of existing literature and on studies in herbaria and in the field. It aims to be simple as well as authoritative, and should enable a reader to name as far as its subspecies any fern, conifer or flowering plant growing wild or widely cultivated.

The fifth and final volume covers the Monocotyledons. Apart from keys and descriptions, information is given on geographical distribution and, where possible, on habitat preference and chromosome number. All names used in 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.
