This is a stunning visual guide to more than 750 of the most
important wild flowers, trees, shrubs, herbs, cacti, grasses,
mosses, aquatic plants and weeds. Each catalogue entry details the
flower size, shape, colour, height, leaf, habitat and distribution,
as well as the growth stages of the plant, from seeds, buds and
open bloom to pollination and seedhead. A detailed introduction
describes the life cycle of wild flowers, the habitats in which
they thrive, and how to identify them in their own habitat. The
encyclopedia is divided geographically into the distinct areas of
Europe and Africa, the Americas, and Australia and Oceania. The key
features of each habitat are clearly described, together with an
analysis of the type of plants that exist in each one and any
common qualities they have. The individual entries are arranged
according to plant family, and the key features of each are
described in full. For each entry, details are provided, such as
flower colour, size and shape; stem height and spread; leaf size,
shape and colour; the number of flowers per flowerhead and the
number of flowerheads per stem, as well as details of their
environment and their pollinating insects. A map accompanying each
entry shows the countries where each flower is known to
proliferate. With more than 1750 colour photographs, specially
commissioned watercolour artworks and maps, this richly illustrated
guide to the world's flora is a comprehensive reference source to
be used by the famil, libraries, schools and professional
