Description

Description

Situated in the South Atlantic, some 500 km from mainland South America, the Falkland Islands are a remote archipelago formed of two larger islands (East and West Falkland) and over 500 smaller islands. This book is the output from a collaboration between scientists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Falklands Conservation, who have been working together for many years. With recent additions to the flora, there are now 181 vascular plant species recorded as native to the Islands, including one natural hybrid, as well as 14 vascular plant species that are endemic to the Falklands and therefore found nowhere else. This new comprehensive field guide covers over 300 species, including both native and non-native, from 14 broad habitat types. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, each species profile includes nomenclature, description, flowering times, native status, distribution, habitat, abundance, legal protection, Red List status and invasive notes.
