9781842464977: Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Algarve (Field Guides)

The Algarve region is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe—more than seven million tourists enjoy the beaches and culture of southern Portugal each year. While its mild climate entices human visitors, it also encourages natives of the floral variety. Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Algarve is the first comprehensive guide to these flowers. It covers more than one thousand of the species found in the area, which includes the remarkable Cape St. Vincent Peninsula National Park.

With the Field Guide, visitors can find the best places and times to see the plants. The Guide also explains their habitats and vegetation types. Richly illustrated, it includes hundreds of color photos and line drawings to aid identification, plus distribution maps that make it easy to plan trips and find nearby species.

Introductory passages give environmental context and cover climate, geology, agriculture, wildflower classification, and flower morphology. Written to appeal to both amateur naturalists and professional botanists alike, this is the essential companion for anyone drawn to the rich beauty of the Algarve.

About the Author:

Chris Thorogood received his PhD at the University of Bristol and has taught field courses to university students in the Algarve since 2006. Simon Hiscock is professor of botany in the Biological Sciences Department at the University of Bristol and is director of the University of Bristol Botanic Garden.

Review:

"Exceptional for those interested in the natural world: beautiful photography, excellent notes on identification and natural history, and a focus on a distinctive geographical and diverse floristic domain that stretches across the southernmost region of mainland Portugal, and its least developed region—the western Algarve." (Plant Science Bulletin)
