Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Eastern Mediterranean is the most comprehensive and up-to-date plant identification guide to the region written to date.
This large area has a complex and varied geology and topography but is united by its typically Mediterranean climate of hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. The eastern Mediterranean has an exceptionally high number of endemic species, and a flora quite distinct from the western Mediterranean Basin.
The geographic coverage of the book spans the Ionian Archipelago, mainland Greece, Peloponnese, Aegean Islands, Crete, Cyprus, Mediterranean Turkey, and the coasts and adjacent deserts of Israel and Palestine, Lebanon and Syria.
Featuring over 3,000 plants, this easy-to-use guide focuses on the most common and conspicuous species that occur in the area, with plant descriptions, colour photographs and illustrations throughout. A section on where to see wild flowers in the region is included, as well as a glossary of terms. An ideal companion for wildlife and plant enthusiasts, this guide will enable you to identify wild flowers reliably in the field.
