Book Description:

Flora Europaea, published in five volumes over three decades, remains the definitive reference for the identification of ferns, conifers or flowering plants growing wild or widely cultivated in Europe.

Review:

'Flora Europaea is a triumph of international organisation and co-operation as well as a work of exceptionally high value and importance.' The Naturalist 'All botanists will welcome the continued rapid progress of the Flora ... and we may all be pleased with the result.' Arthur Cronquist, Quarterly Review of Biology 'One essential advantage of this work is that it elucidates the taxonomic and geographical connections and graduations of taxa that appear too much isolated in local floras. May it be used by many people, and may its good progress continue.' Watsonia 'Cette grande entreprise internationale se poursuit de la facon la plus satisfaisante et la haute qualite de cet ouvrage de base, et deja celebre, continue a s'affirmer. La Flora Europaea constitue un monument de science et un exemple de collaboration internationale qui ne savraient se voir assez loues.' J. L. Monod, La Terre et La Vie 'Flora Europaea, by applying a beneficial taxonomic uniformity within its area, will inevitably broaden the horizons of all those who use it. It should lead to a new phase in European botany, and will certainly provide a firm basis for further taxonomic research for many years to come. One cannot but admire the consistency of production in a work to which more than fifty botanists from all over Europe have contributed. The layout, scope and terminology show a uniformity throughout for which the editors must be congratulated.' Nature
