About this book

The glorious colours and the diversity of shapes of Alpine plants delight every alpinist and hiker! Those who take time to look closer at the plants and their dwellings will be rewarded with discovery of many interesting relationships between plants and their environment, and will enjoy their ever varying appearance and the multitude of forms. The SAC guidebook helps the reader to know diverse aspects of the plant life in the Alps. It also points out some problems: which faraway lands the Alpine plants come from? Why is the plant cover near Zermatt village different from that high up at the foot of the Eiger? How do some Alpine plants still manage to grow above 12.000 ft, whereas the others do not even reach the timberline To make easier the recognition of species, Our Alpine Flora is equipped with colour photographs, mostly taken in natural sites. In addition, about 75 species are presented in ink drawings! A practical fieldguide for amateur botanists, it is also an important reference work for all those with an interest in alpine plants. A practical field guide for amateur botanists, it is also an important reference work for all those with an interest in alpine plants so as well as for students.
