About this book

Language: Dutch

The plant genus Carex, commonly known as sedges, is part of the family Cyperaceae and is the largest plant genus in the Netherlands. Sedges are important indicator species in environmental management. On the other hand, they are hard to identify for many botanists. First, because they are so numerous, second because they resemble each closely, and third because hybridisation between species is common.

In this second part of the Nova Flora Neerlandica, the authors give an overview of the research history on sedges in the Netherlands. Next, they give an in-depth treatment of all 73 species that have been found in the wild, including twelve introduced (adventive) and one extinct species, as well as all 33 hybrids known so far. The beautiful colour photos illustrate each species.

Summary in Dutch:
Het plantengeslacht Carex - Zegge, behorende tot de familie der Cyperaceae, is het grootste genus in ons land. Zeggen zijn belangrijke indicatorsoorten in natuurbeheer. Aan de andere kant zijn het voor veel botanici lastige soorten om te determineren. Allereerst omdat het er zo veel zijn, ten tweede omdat veel soorten op elkaar lijken en ten derde omdat hybriden tussen soorten relatief veel voorkomen.

In dit tweede deel van de Nova Flora Neerlandica geven de auteurs eerst een overzicht van de geschiedenis der caricologie in ons land. Vervolgens worden alle 73 ooit in ons land in het wild gevonden soorten, inclusief twaalf ingevoerde (adventieve) soorten en één uitgestorven soort, uitvoerig behandeld, evenals alle tot nog toe bekende hybriden, 33 in totaal. De schitterende kleurenfoto’s geven de soorten een gezicht.
