Plants and Habitats combines the species and habitat approaches to plants and vegetation. Most of it is an identification guide to 700 plant species selected as those which are common, conspicuous or useful ecological indicators; species which collectively make up most of the vegetation in Britain and Ireland. There is also a separate Habitats section describing the flora, ecology and management of habitats. With this combination of approaches Plants and Habitats aims to help people understand our vegetation at all scales, from individual plants to whole landscapes. The structure and plain English writing style are designed to help with species identification by non-specialists. Plants and Habitats is illustrated throughout with colour photos and some line drawings. For those working with habitat classifications, National Vegetation Classification (NVC) codes are incorporated throughout and there are summary tables cross-referencing various classifications. The book is written for a wide readership including those working or training in subjects connected with ecology, conservation, land management, and other environmental matters.

About the Author:

Ben Averis BA MPhil worked for some years on woodland vegetation and bryophyte (moss & liverwort) surveys, but since 1990 has worked in a very wide range of upland and lowland habitats. His MPhil was a study of bryophyte flora and ecology in over 400 woods in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. Ben and Alison Averis are professionally qualified and highly experienced botanists with an exceptionally detailed and extensive knowledge and understanding of British vegetation. They have been studying vegetation and flora professionally since 1983 and are particularly experienced with the northern and western parts of Britain. They provide a range of services including surveys, monitoring projects, teaching and advisory work. The high quality of their work is recognised by many people and organisations including the statutory conservation agencies, the Forestry Commission, conservation-related non-government organisations, and ecological consultancies.
