About this title


This book concentrates on the group of plants showing the steepest decline among British flora over the past 25 years--plants that grow among the crops.

  • Easy-to-use format is designed to enable people to take it into the field and to identify these species whether they are a beginner or an expert

  • The text covers the history of--and includes practical recommendations for managing--the places where these plants still occur

  • 100 plant profiles include key identification features, flowering and germination times, and differences between similar species

  • Color distribution maps show where these plants have been seen in the past 25 years, while the accompanying text indicates their current location
