Scottish Wild Plants: Their History, Ecology and Conservation

£4.99

Product description

"Scottish Wild Plants publicises the wealth of Scotland's native flora, by highlighting a selection of over forty of the rarest and most interesting species. The text provides a wealth of detailed factual material about each of the plants, particularly focusing on their own special features of interest, the history of their discovery (and some of the colourful personalities involved), and in some cases the complicated story of their correct identification, their particular ecological needs and their current status whether that be thriving or declining. The attractiveness and visual impact of these plants, as well as the range of plant types from the Scots pine to the tiny Iceland purslane, are superbly illustrated by Sidney Clarke's photographs taken at locations throughout Scotland. These photographs also illustrate the variety and quality of Scottish habitats in which this selection of species grow. In addition, Scottish Wild Plants includes sections on the range of habitat types found throughout Scotland, especially those, such as mountain ledges, calcareous grasslands and wetlands, where many of our rarest plants survive. It describes some of the threats to our native plants, and current initiatives to protect these plants through habitat protection, management and in some cases active restoration and re-introduction work."
