About this book

Language: Spanish

This book contains a selection of 229 species of native and some naturalized flowering plants, belonging to 53 families, that are common in Central Argentina and especially the Province of Córdoba.

A general description of each family is given, illustrating those whose complex floral morphology requires additional explanation. For each species, its scientific name and common names, a description of its geographical distribution in the country, habitat, vegetative and reproductive morphological characteristics, flowering season, most common uses and notable aspects of its biology are provided. Each species is illustrated with colour photographs, and, together with an illustrated glossary, facilitates the understanding of the descriptions.

With this book, the authors intend to transmit the knowledge generated in academic fields in a language appropriate not only for professionals and students but also, and especially, for the general public that is interested in native plants. In addition, it tries to contribute to raising awareness about the need to respect, protect, and value nature.

Summary in Spanish:
Este libro contiene una selección de 229 especies, nativas y algunas naturalizadas, pertenecientes a 65 familias de plantas con flores que son frecuentes en el Centro de Argentina y especialmente en la Provincia de Córdoba.

Se hace una descripción general de cada familia, ilustrando aquellas cuya morfología floral, por ser muy compleja, requiere de una explicación adicional. Se proporciona para cada especie su nombre científico y nombres vulgares, una descripción de su distribución geográfica en el país, hábitat, características morfológicas vegetativas y reproductivas, época de floración, usos más comunes y aspectos notables de su biología. Se destaca en esta obra la ilustración de cada especie con fotografías a color y un glosario ilustrado para facilitar la comprensión de las descripciones.

Con este libro pretendemos transmitir los conocimientos generados en los ámbitos académicos con un lenguaje apropiado no sólo para profesionales y estudiantes sino también, y especialmente, para el público en general que tenga interés por las plantas nativas. Además, se intenta contribuir a tomar conciencia sobre la necesidad de respetar, proteger y valorar la naturaleza.
