About this book

This volume of the series of books about the Wild Flowers of the Algarve contains drawings of more than 250 wild growing herbaceous plants, spread over 122 colour plates.

The sequence in which the plants are shown differs from the one in volume I. In that volume the plants are classified according to the family and genus classification of the standard work Nova Flora de Portugal (Continente e Acores). In volume II the plants are displayed according to their flowering period. This means that on the first plates plants are depicted which already bloom in December, and that the book ends with drawings of plants blooming in autumn.

After a short introduction and a glossary of technical terms, the main part of the book deals with colour plates and descriptions in English of all depicted plants, provided with scientific names and English names, as far as existing. The book ends with indices of the English and scientific names
