This user-friendly field-guide describes and illustrates the ferns, clubmosses, quillworts and horsetails native to Britain and Ireland, giving comprehensive entries for over 100 species and hybrids. Each entry gives a brief 'pen picture' which outlines the key features of each species, supported by clear and informative frond silhouette illustrations. Valuable additional information on distribution, ecology and biology is provided in the form of 'Field Notes'. Many improved silhouette illustrations have been prepared for this updated edition and additional material on difficult groups, such as the spleenworts and buckler ferns, has been included. The accessible style and format of the first edition has been retained, enabling many European as well as British ferns to be identified accurately by amateurs and professionals alike.

Review:

'It is heartening in these days, when so many authors assume the 'amateur' is incapable of serious study, that an enthusiastic expert has carried on the splendid tradition of helping the informed amateur naturalist as well as the professional botanist - and given people a tool to take them further into a fascinating subject.' Trevor James, BBC Wildlife

'... invaluable book ... clear and succinct accounts of every species.' Trevor James, BBC Wildlife

'... enlarged, expanded and greatly improved ... photographs which are relevant, informative and, frequently, beautiful ... The second edition is a great improvement on the excellent first, and is accessible by the specialist and beginner alike, both of whom will have much to gain from reference to, or browsing in, Dr Page's book.' James Merryweather, New Phytology

'This book is a good and valuable read and it is the most comprehensive book on British and Irish ferms. As these Isles harbour a wealth of species the book is of great interest to fern enthusiasts from abroad. If you do not have the first edition, this book is a must.' J. C. Vogel, Fern Gazette

' ... this is still clearly the best book available on British pteridophytes.' F. J. Rumsey, Annals of Botany

'Ferns of Britain and Ireland maintains its place as the best book on ferns in Britain.' Edinburgh Journal of Botany

Book Description:

This user-friendly, illustrated field-guide gives comprehensive information for over 100 species and hybrids of ferns, clubmosses, quillworts and horsetails. Many improved illustrations have been prepared for this new edition and additional material on difficult groups has been included.
