Every current field guide depends on the user having some knowledge of the subject. Collins How to Identify guides are designed to help even those with the most basic knowledge identify different species with confidence.
The latest title in this popular series, How to Identify Flowers includes 100 of the most common species of wild flower found in Britain and Northern Europe.
Organised by the apparent number of petals the flower contains, each of the main species is illustrated together with a detailed description of identification features, habitat, range and habit (how the flower grows). Commonly confusable species are illustrated alongside to enable fast and accurate identification.
Packed with information that is both fascinating and practical, together with highly-detailed original colour illustrations, How to Identify Flowers is the essential identification handbook for all those who are just starting out.
