About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Slovene

The authors precisely specify the variants within individual species with a description of morphological features that are the result of their own field experience. The colour variants of the common primrose are listed in detail as possible clinal versus genetic variations, from almost completely white, which are characteristic of the Mediterranean region, to various shades of yellow, which are characteristic of the interior of Slovenia. They provide scientific studies that explain these colour variations. They also list colour variations of other species in more detail, supported by historical sources of their descriptions.
