A new key to wild flowers

  • Code: OP90

This is not a photographic guide to wild flowers

Halfway between an introductory guide and a technical flora, this user-friendly key provides an easy route to the accurate naming of flowers, trees, grasses, sedges, rushes and ferns in the British Isles. No expert botanical knowledge is expected and with a little practice the key can quickly be mastered.

The key has its origins in courses run by the author where a simple field key was required. Illustrated with many line drawings throughout, it is intended for everyone who would like to know the names of flowers but who are discouraged by more sophisticated and wordy keys.
