Warwickshire's Wildflowers provides a modern snapshot of the flora of Warwickshire and reflects heavily on recent changes, both losses and gains. It is as much a book about Warwickshire (defined here as including Coventry, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and much of east Birmingham) as about the plants themselves. It explains how the local landscape has come to look the way it does, and how wildflowers have adapted to the challenges and opportunities associated with some six thousand years of local human activity.
The text is complemented by many beautiful colour images that capture the beauty of the local plantlife and the places where they grow. Reading this book may radically change the way you view the local landscapes and will help to make any urban or rural journey an opportunity to discover unusual or beautiful plants.
The book also provides a fully updated checklist of Warwickshire's 1,778 native and naturalised plants, and the first formal classification of those considered most rare and requiring conservation.
