The British Isles are home to a diverse range of trees, flowers, shrubs, herbs and weeds. This beautifully illustrated book presents a comprehensive identification guide to more than 650 native and introduced flora. It is arranged into two sections covering first the trees and then the wild flowers of Britain. The introduction to each section looks at the evolution of plants, their life cycles, plant parts and the role of each in the survival of the species. Two directories of trees and flowers follow. They include many of the most common and well-known plants as well as rare and endangered species. The species are arranged by plant family, and many are illustrated with botanical watercolours, making this volume a comprehensive field guide to Britain's flora.
