From the Scots Pine to the tiny Iceland Purslane, Scotland's native flora is explored using detailed information and illustrations. Over 40 of the rarest and most interesting species are studied in depth. The history of their discovery and identification (and some of the personalities involved), their particular ecological needs and special features of interest, and their current status - whether that be thriving or declining - are included. The variety of Scottish habitats, their protection and management are discussed alongside photographs taken at locations throughout Scotland.
