One of the most comprehensive collections of colour photographs of European plants (including many species of tree) ever published, the "Philip's Photographic Guide to Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe" is essential reading for anyone interested in European flora.
The volume features 1500 colour photographs, many specially commissioned, which place the plant in its natural habitat so aiding identification; 1900 detailed individual species descriptions; 1000 painstakingly researched distribution maps and over 400 diagnostic line artworks all of which aid identification.
The result of many field trips over much of Europe, and featuring wild flowers from Europe's widely varied landscapes, ranging from remote sea-swept cliffs and mountains to the more familiar patchwork of fields and woods, bounded by hedgerows, this exhaustive guide serves as a perfect introduction to anyone who is keen to learn more about European wild flowers as well as providing a reliable and valuable resource for more experienced botanists.
"Philip's Photographic Guide to Wild Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe" also features in-depth articles describing some of the most important European regions to visit in order to see a wide and varied selection of the flora described in the book.
