About this book

Language: Spanish

The flora of Andalusia, Spain, is exceptionally rich and diverse. In Flores Silvestres de Andalucía the authors analyze some of the physical, historical, and evolutionary circumstances that are responsible for such a unique biological wealth. Representatives from almost all families are treated, supported by a photo. As such, nearly 500 species have been selected, based on rarity, ecological significance, biogeographical value, medicinal interest, hazard or threat, etc. The native plants of Andalusia get special attention in this book, but plants common to the fields, forests, mountains and the Iberian subdeserts of the southern region are also covered.

Summary in Spanish:
La Naturaleza se muestra en Andalucía con inusitada diversidad. La flora que tapiza su suelo y sus roquedos es considerada como una de las más ricas y variadas de toda la biosfera. Sin embargo, su conocimiento y aprecio son aún exiguos. Los datos botánicos se hallan muy dispersos y todavía no se dispone de suficiente material bibliográfico que divulge y haga estimar el patrimonio florístico del sur de España.

En esta obra se analizan algunas de las circunstancias físicas, históricas y evolutivas que son responsables de una riqueza biológica tan singular. Con la imágen fotográfica como soporte se hace un repaso a casi todas las familias botánicas que poseen representantes espontáneos o naturalizados en suelo andaluz. Así, cerca de medio millar de estirpes son seleccionadas en función de su rareza, significado ecológico, valor biogeográfico, interés medicinal, situación de peligro o amenaza, etc. Especial atención merecen, en esta obra, las plantas oriundas de Andalucáa, esto es, sus endemismos vegetales. Y a su lado se describen bastantes más que son comunes de los campos, bosques, montes y subdesiertos de la región meridional ibérica, con el fin de que este libro constituya una herramienta documental para el excursionista, el estudioso de la Naturaleza y el comprometido con su conservación.
