The Greek mountain region is well known amongst botanists for its rich flora and high proportion of endemic species. This is a hugely welcome reprint of the first part of a classic flora, produced by a team of some twenty-five botanists from several European countries. For each species the following information is given: name and bibliographic reference; notes on nomenclature and typification; synonymy; description; ecology and flowering time; distribution (within the area and more generally); chromosome number; discussion of affinities and special features. Dichotomous keys to taxa at all levels are provided and 50 (mostly full-page) illustrations are included.
Reissue of a book first published in 1986.
