About this book

Language: French

The vegetation of the French Alps has been studied for several decades and is often presented in technical publications or floras that feature only a small number of images. Walkers and botanist are often helpless in the correct identification of plants in situ. This is the one of the most comprehensive field guides with 1175 colour photos, covering most of the species in the Alps. The author has endeavored to describe each plant succinctly, using only botanical characteristics visible on the ground for a rapid effective and scientifically serious determination.

The descriptions are supplemented by a quality iconography where the botanical details are highlighted. The second edition has been revised and augmented and has been expanded with an additional 30 pages.

Summary in French:
La végétation des Alpes françaises a été étudiée depuis plusieurs décennies et présentée dans des publications souvent de haut niveau ou dans de petites flores imagées partielles. Le promeneur et le botaniste sont néanmoins souvent désarmés dans la détermination correcte des plantes in situ. C’est pourquoi nous vous proposons cette flore de terrain la plus complète possible (1 175 fiches illustrées), reprenant la plupart des espèces des Alpes. L’auteur s’est attaché à décrire chaque plante de façon succincte, utilisant uniquement les caractéristiques botaniques visibles sur le terrain pour une détermination rapide, efficace et sérieuse sur le plan scientifique.

Les descriptions sont complétées par une iconographie de qualité où les détails botaniques sont mis en évidence.
