About this book

Language: French

A major publishing event for European botany: this is the first flora (5000 species of vascular plants) of France and Corsica for many decades.

Nearly 15 years of work were necessary for a committee of more than 60 recognized experts, assembled by the Botanical Society of France (SBF) and led by Jean-Marc Tison and Bruno de Foucault, to achieve what is expected to become a reference work: a completely redesigned flora, going far beyond a mere compilation of existing identification keys. Up to date with the latest discoveries, Flora Gallica follows the latest classification (the APG III).

Flora Gallica appears as a single volume, and is portable into the field. The book contains determination keys of all natural, naturalized or cultivated species  of Pteridophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms present in mainland France and Corsica. The keys are enhanced by information on distribution, habitat and illustrations relevant to the reader. Covering the entire metropolitan area, Flora Gallica describes about 6000 taxa including nearly 5,000 natural species.

To its modern, practical and critical character (taking into account the variability of taxa and retaining only those with a real taxonomic value) are added some specifics that do not exist in any other flora in the world, such as an indication of the architectural model of trees, illustrated by Francis Hallé, a recognized specialist in plant architecture.

Please note that the book was reprinted with minor amendments in 2015. A PDF file with errata to the first printing is available.

Summary in French:
Près de 15 ans de travail auront été nécessaires à un comité de plus de 60 spécialistes reconnus, réunis par la Société botanique de France (SBF) autour de Jean-Marc Tison et Bruno de Foucault, pour aboutir à ce qui est appelé à devenir un ouvrage de référence : une flore totalement refondue, allant bien au-delà d’une simple compilation des clés d’identification existantes. À jour des dernières découvertes, Flora Gallica suit la classification la plus récente (celle de l’APG III).

Flora Gallica se présente comme un volume unique, portatif sur le terrain. L’ouvrage contient les clés de détermination de toutes les espèces naturelles, acclimatées ou cultivées en grand de Ptéridophytes, Gymnospermes et Angiospermes présentes en France continentale et Corse. Les clés sont agrémentées d’informations de répartition et d’habitat et des illustrations nécessaires à l’utilisateur. Couvrant l’ensemble du territoire métropolitain, Flora Gallica décrit environ 6000 taxons dont près de 5000 espèces naturelles spontanées.

À son caractère moderne, pratique et critique (tenant compte de la variabilité des taxons et ne retenant que ceux qui possèdent une réelle valeur taxonomique), s’ajoutent quelques spécificités qui n’existent dans aucune autre flore au monde comme l’indication des modèles architecturaux des arbres, illustrés par Francis Hallé, spécialiste reconnu de l’architecture des plantes.
