About this book

This is a celebration of an exceptionally rich, yet threatened flora. The largest island in the Greek archipelago, Crete's enchanting landscapes range from rugged mountains to desert-like areas, coastal plains and ancient olive groves. Its extraordinary geological and climatic history has resulted in great plant diversity, with prehistoric links to Europe, Asia and North Africa. United by their love for the island's plants, the authors and editor have produced a sumptuous and authoritative book, covering over 800 species, lavishly illustrated in colour.

Reprinted with corrections August 2008.
