About this book

Language: Swedish

Nordens Flora is the indispensable standard for describing all old and new plants in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Spetsbergen in vivid images and detailed text. It is aimed at beginners and plant hunters, nature conservationists and ecologists. Illustrated by Bo Mossberg, written by Lennart Stenberg, in close collaboration with leading Nordic botanists, Nordens Flora gives the reader information about the flowering, rarity, ecology, typical habitats, the typical characteristics and variations in the appearance of stems, leaves, flowers and fruits. Maps show the current distribution of the plants.

When this flora was first published in 1992 with the name Den Nordiska Floran, it was very successful. No similar book had previously been on the market, it was sold to all Nordic countries and became the flora to own, use and give away to both professionals and the public. Eleven years later, the flora (this time with the name Den Nya Nordiska Floran) was revised and expanded with 800 new species. The result – an even more beautiful and more extensive flora. It has been printed in countless times and demand is still as big.

It has now been revised again, changes its name to the Nordens Flora. Much has happened in the world of botany, which necessitates an update, not least because of recent genetical research on the relationship between different plant families. In addition, the flora is further expanded with a number of new species (including dandelions, irises, willows and alpine species). Nordens Flora contains all known vascular plants in the Nordic region (over 3300 species).

Summary in Swedish:
Vacker, lovprisad och storsäljande. Nordens Flora är det oundgängliga standardverket när det gäller att beskriva samtliga gamla och nya växter i Sverige, Danmark, Norge, Finland, Färöarna, Island och Spetsbergen i livfulla bilder och utförlig text. Den vänder sig till nybörjare och växtjägare, naturvårdare och ekologer. Illustrerad av Bo Mossberg och skriven av Lennart Stenberg i nära samarbete med vår tids ledande nordiska botanister ger Nordens Flora läsaren upplysningar om växternas blomningstid, frekvens, ekologi, typiska växtplatser, viktiga kännetecken och variationer i utseende på stammar, blad, blommor och frukter. Kartor visar växternas aktuella utbredning.

Redan när floran (då med namnet Den Nordiska Floran) utkom första gången 1992 var den en sensation! Inget liknande hade tidigare funnits på marknaden, den såldes till alla nordiska länder och blev floran att äga, använda och ge bort till både fackintresserade och allmänheten. Elva år senare reviderades floran (denna gång med namnet Den Nya Nordiska Floran) och utökades med 800 nya arter. Resultatet – en ännu vackrare och mer omfattande flora. Den har tryckts om otaliga gånger och efterfrågan är alltjämt lika stor.

När den nu revideras ytterligare en gång byter den namn till Nordens Flora. Mycket har hänt inom det botaniska området som föranleder en uppdatering, inte minst de senaste decenniernas DNA-forskning om släktskapet mellan olika växtfamiljer. Dessutom utökas floran ytterligare med ett flertal nya arter (bland annat fibblor, irisar, viden och fjällarter). Nordens Flora innehåller alla i Norden nu kända kärlväxter (över 3300 arter).
