About this book

Language: English

This is, according to the editors, a "pseudo-facsimile" edition. The original Flora Graeca is in folio format. To reproduce it in this size would be unpractical, and the plates have thus been somewhat reduced to fit a print area of 16 × 24 cm. Small plants sometimes occupy only a portion of the centre of an otherwise blank page in the original, with the calligraphed name at the far bottom. In such cases the size has been modified so that the drawing fills a reasonable part of the page and the name has sometimes been moved closer. For each species there is a two-page spread. The colour plate is reproduced on the right-hand page. On the upper half of the facing left-hand page is a text block in English and on the lower half a dot map produced from the more than 700,000 records stored in the Flora Hellenica Database (for species not occurring within the borders of present-day Greece the map is omitted). The text block contains the following elements: a) Currently accepted scientific name, with authority and place of publication, b) Important synonyms, with authority but without place of publication, c) Comments on taxonomic status, distribution, ecology, flowering time and other features of interest, d) A brief description, emphasizing diagnostic characters. The re-issue has been published in 5 volumes, each corresponding to two volumes of the original Flora Graeca.

Please note that this set weighs in at just over 10 kg.
