Flowers of Greece and the Balkans is a unique field guide by one of the best-known botanists of our time. First published in 1987 and never surpassed, this volume names and describes nearly 3,000 species of flowering plants in the region. Many of the richest plant hunting areas in southeast Europe are described firsthand, and each description is accompanied by several line drawings. The book's most outstanding feature is 80 pages of color plates containing almost 500 photographs of flowers in their natural settings. The only comprehensive field guide for the region, this reissued version will delight all botanists, gardeners, conservationists, and naturalists interested in the flora of southeastern Europe.
The re-issue of this splendid, handsome and useful publication, in paperback format, has been long overdue. * Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society *
