This book is much more than a field guide. With it the user can identify the more than 1100 species of wildflowers growing in Britain and north-west Europe and understand how each is adapted to its environment. Part 1 is an extended introduction to the plant kingdom. Part 2, the identification guide, is organized by plant family. Entries include small but excellent color paintings for most species and concise text giving common and scientific names, description, and life history data. Key features of the main families are arranged in seven identification tables. Part 3 is a clearly written, up-to-date mini-course in natural history. Wildflower enthusiasts visiting the area will find this book invaluable. Annette Aiello, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama
