About this book

Language: French

How do you tell the coveted wild garlic leaf from the poisonous lily of the valley leaf? Although these two species are only distant relatives, their leaves look very similar at first glance and one mistake could prove fatal. When the flowers of Switzerland's native plants have already died back or are not yet visible, it is sometimes very difficult to determine the species. This identification guide contains nearly 2,600 species and nearly 7,500 drawings and is very useful for determining the vascular plants of Switzerland in the absence of their flowers. Thanks to the commented drawings of the habit of the plant, leaves and shoots, even a non-specialist quickly recognizes plants without flowers. Convenient synoptic tables and determination keys based on vegetative traits make this book indispensable for excursions throughout the year. This corrected and expanded third edition includes 148 new species, including aquatic plants and the most important neophytes. By adapting the species names to the current standard in the Infoflora Checklist 2017, the species are now fully compatible with Flora Helvetica. Finally, the distribution maps have been updated.

Summary in French:
Comment différencier la feuille si convoitée de l’ail des ours de la feuille toxique du muguet? Bien que ces deux espèces ne soient que des parents lointains, leurs feuilles se ressemblent beaucoup à première vue et une erreur pourrait s’avérer fatale. Quand les fleurs de nos plantes indigènes sont déjà passées ou qu’elles ne sont pas encore visibles, il est parfois très difficile d’en déterminer l’espèce. Ce livre de détermination d’un nouveau genre, contenant près de 2600 espèces et près de 7500 dessins, est très utile pour déterminer les plantes vasculaires de Suisse en absence de leurs fleurs. Grâce aux dessins commentés du port de la plante, des feuilles et des pousses, même un non spécialiste reconnaît rapidement les plantes sans fleurs. Des tableaux synoptiques pratiques et des clés de détermination basés sur les caractères végétatifs rendent ce livre indispensable pour les excursions durant toute l’année. Cette troisième édition corrigée et augmentée comporte 148 espèces nouvelles, dont notamment les plantes aquatiques et les néophytes les plus importantes. En adaptant les noms des espèces à la norme actuelle de la Checklist 2017 d’Infoflora, les espèces sont désormais pleinement compatibles avec Flora Helvetica. Enfin, les cartes de répartition ont été mises à jour.
