About this book

Language: Spanish

This is a monograph on a genus of flowering plants, Centaurea, considered to be the most diversified of the flora of the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, where it is represented by 94 species, or 136 taxa considering the infraspecific variability, of which 67 are endemic to the territory. A description is given of the importance of vascular plants in the history of the vegetation of the territory and its current diversity. This is followed by a detailed description of the family and the tribe to which the genus belongs, as well as a profusely illustrated key to identifying species.

All species and subspecies known in the territory are detailed, and are accompanied by a rigorous iconography, distribution maps and abundant graphic information on plants and on some of the habitats in which they live. The book, which aims at a broad audience without losing scientific rigor, is of great interest to naturalists, botanists, and evolutionary biologists and conservationists.

Summary in Spanish:
Se trata de una monografía sobre un género de plantas con flor, Centaurea, considerado el más diversificado de la flora de la Península Ibérica y Baleares, donde está representado por 94 especies, o por 136 taxones si se considera la variabilidad infraespecífica, de los que 67 son endémicos del territorio. A una descripción de la importancia de las plantas vasculares en la historia de la vegetación del territorio y de su diversidad actual, sigue la descripción pormenorizada de la familia y la tribu a la que pertenece el género, así como una clave para la identificación de las especies, profusamente ilustrada, de gran utilidad para facilitar el proceso.

Se detallan todas las especies y subespecies conocidas en el territorio, que se acompañan de una iconografía rigurosa, de mapas de distribución y de una abundante información gráfica sobre las plantas y sobre algunos de los hábitats en que viven. El libro, con gran vocación divulgadora, pero sin perder rigor científico, es de alto interés para naturalistas, botánicos, y biólogos evolucionistas y de la conservación.
