About this book

Lying 1800 km from Africa, St Helena is a tiny, remote island of dramatic landscapes, from barren desert to lush cloud forest. The vertiginous, volcanic slopes which rise steeply from the South Atlantic Ocean are populated by a unique flora of great evolutionary interest, including 45 endemic species of flowering plants and ferns, some of which belong to groups found nowhere else. This is the first identification guide to cover all of the island's native and established vascular plants, and is accompanied by a wealth of ecological and historical information supported by extensive original research.
