Illustrated Flora of Albania.
Hardcover 17x24cm, 576 pp. 377 colour plates, 5769 single illustrations, in English.
Albania, the Land of Squipetars, is possibly the most rapidly growing tourist-destination worldwide. However, detailed and easily accessible information to the country´s richest treasury, its enormous biodiversity, is still scarce. Illustrated Flora of Albania is the first book in English that covers all the wild plants of a Balkan country, thereby including also a nearly complete and fully coloured iconography. More shortly treated are only some plant genera still insufficiently studied in Albania, e.g. largely apomictic groups like Taraxacum, Rubus, Alchemilla, Hieracium or notorious difficult grass-genus Festuca. Naturalists relying more on photos than on collected material hopefully will be able to determine most of the plants alone by comparison with the 5769 single illustrations. This should be possible even in more critical groups (e.g. Apiaceae, Brassicaceae, grasses, sedges), due to a lot of detail-illustrations, showing fruits, seeds etc. For each species, additional information like flowering-time, life form, preferred habitat is given in the dichotomous keys. Relevant sources are documented in a comprehensive reference-list.
Including: The complete sponaneous flora of the country. A nearly complete iconography with 377 colour plates, containing 5769 single illustrations. Numerous colour macro-photos showing relevant plant-details (seeds, fruits etc.). Dichotomous keys for the determination of species and often also subspecies. A comprehensive list of cited literature
