About this book

This is a simple identification guide to the most common and attractive plants of the Falkland Islands. It describes 56 different plants, selected because they are particularly striking or interesting. Plants have been included from nearly all Falkland habitat types and from most of the plant families found growing in the Islands. It is intended for use by anyone - Islanders, visitors, young and old - in fact anyone who wants to know more about the beautiful flora of the Islands.

* Illustrated with colour photographs throughout
* Includes an identification key covering flower colour, shape height/spread, fruit and habitat
* Has a detailed description of the plant, its flowering period and where it can be found
* Fascinating local facts
* Eleven delicious traditional recipes using native ingredients

The author, Ali Liddle, recently took a two-year sabbatical from her teaching job to work for Falklands Conservation on an environmental education project, particularly to develop locally focussed education material for the Falkland Islands' schools. This book forms part of that project, and has been produced with support from the UK Overseas Territories Environment Programme.
