About this book

Language: German

This excursion guide is a indispensable, field-compatible addition to the standard work Flora Helvetica. Practical and accurate, it contains detailed drawings and descriptions of clearly identifiable features to facilitate plant identification.

The Flora Helvetica has become the standard for plant identification in Switzerland. In addition to the illustrated book, this new excursion guide complements the series. With the excursion volume, all vascular plants occurring in Switzerland can be identified with detailed and easy-to-understand identification keys, with great emphasis placed on well-recognizable, field-appropriate characteristics.

For many of the species featured, detailed drawings facilitate the identification. With data on habitat, flowering time and distribution, and illustrated with more than 3000 distribution maps, the most important additional information is obtained in a compact manner. The excursion guide was prepared and published by InfoFlora. It treats all 4000 wild species found on the official checklist of Infoflora for Switzerland and thus contains several hundred neophytes that have never been treated before in Swiss floras.

Summary in German:
Der Exkursionsführer ist die unentbehrliche, feldtaugliche Ergänzung zum Standardwerk Flora Helvetica. Alltagstauglich und genau: Detailzeichnungen und die Beschreibung gut erkennbarer Merkmale erleichtern die Bestimmung.

Die Flora Helvetica ist längst zum Standard für die Pflanzenbestimmung in der Schweiz geworden. Neben dem Bildband und der App ergänzt der neue Exkursionsführer nun die Reihe. Mit dem Exkursionsband können alle in der Schweiz vorkommenden Gefäßpflanzen mit ausführlichen und leicht verständlichen Bestimmungsschlüsseln identifiziert werden, wobei großer Wert auf gut erkennbare, feldtaugliche Merkmale gelegt wurde.

Bei vielen Arten erleichtern Detailzeichnungen die Bestimmung. Mit den Angaben zu Lebensraum, Blühzeitpunkt und Verbreitung, veranschaulicht durch über 3000 Verbreitungskarten, erhält man in kompakter Weise die wichtigsten Zusatzinformationen. Der Exkursionsführer wurde von Info Flora erarbeitet und herausgegeben. Er behandelt sämtliche 4000 in der Schweiz wild vorkommenden Arten der offiziellen Checkliste von Info Flora und enthält damit mehrere Hundert bisher noch nie in Schweizer Floren behandelte Neophyten.
