Identify Mountain Flowers of Britain and Ireland
A book for people who enjoy both walking on the uplands and observing the natural life there. One hundred and four species of flowering herbs and shrubs are described, one on each A5 size page. These plants are likely to be seen on moors, hills and mountains of this botanical area. Some of them are also common in the lowlands. Rarities and sub-species are not included, for brevity and simplicity.
All these pages include a distribution map, a photograph and a line drawing of the flower. The structure of flowers of some families are described to introduce botanical terms. This book is intended to work alongside one of the comprehensive guides to flowers by being about one habitat, and easily used in the field as well as viewed at home on a large screen.
Published as one file (pdf, 27Mb), it is distributed here free of charge. An index on page 1 links to all species, with returns when viewed using Acrobat or Edge pdf reader apps. To view use a portable device, tablet, e-reader, or a computer that can download and display PDF files in full colour. Many low cost, small to medium size tables will perform well. To print use a laser-colour printing service.
