About the e-book
On 21 December 2011 Carex Europaea, volume 1, was published. This book was sold out rather quickly, so now has been decided to produce an updated e-book version. In the e-book some improvements are made on the text of the 2011 version. Besides, literature within the period 2011-2015 has been taken into account.
This e-book is a documentary book about the nomenclature and distribution of European taxa and hybrids within the genus Carex L. (Cyperaceae). Of all European taxa are given their Accepted Names and all known synonyms both with full citation. Altogether there are about 4500 names involved. Of all taxa is given their distribution within Europe per country and worldwide is given their general distribution. Providing they exist the chromosome numbers (2n) are given for Accepted taxa.
All known European hybrids are mentioned, most of them provided with a name, the others with only their hybrid formula. Of all hybrids is given their European distribution as well, albeit probably incomplete.
Finally about 30 taxa are regarded to be introduced in Europe.
In the back of the book almost 150 pages present full colour photos of about 2/3 of all European species and some hybrids. The photos are meant “to give all the names a face”.
Seven Appendices complete this book. Listed are all authors with their full name lifetime/year of birth and country/countries. All the abbreviated publications used in the main text of chapter 2 and 3 are fully cited. Finally there are lists of “Carices named after”, a list of all the countries and islands, a list of “Interesting websites”, an Appendix with Introduced taxa and one with Question marks.
Finally an Index with all the Synonyms and one with Taxa from outside Europe are given.
This e-book aims to be a reference work for everybody working in the field of Botany or Nature Management.
Ornamental Plants of Malta is a result of one of his research projects dealing with the Flora of the Maltese Islands. In this book almost all the ornamental plants cultivated in public places in Malta (approximately 450 species), are included. Descriptions of the ornamental plants are complemented by about 600 full-colour photographs, with notes on the flowering time, place of origin and occurrence in Malta, and remarks (e.g. about cultivation details) are included to provide the reader with useful background about certain plants.An invaluable aid for plant lovers, gardeners, students, and teachers, scientists and tourists, and all those interested in learning more about the variety of ornamental plants to be found in Malta and the Mediterranean region.

In this field guide to the wildflowers of the Maltese Islands more than 600 of the approximately 1000 species of vascular plants found in Malta, are considered, not only the most prevalent species but also rare ones, introduced or indigenous, as well as most of the endemic species that grow nowhere else in the world. The guide provides short descriptions complemented by about 630 full-colour photographs, with notes about the flowering time, place of origin, occurrence and distribution in the Maltese Islands.

A Field Guide, Second enlarged edition
This first field guide of the wildflowers in the Azores provides short descriptions for 650 of the about 1200 species of vascular plants found in the islands, completed by 380 full-colour photographs. Not only the most prevalent species but also rare and unusual plants of startling beauty are illustrated and described, some of them for the first time.
Much emphasis is given to endemic species that grow nowhere else in the world and plant invaders that constitute a serious threat to natural ecosystems of the Azores. A useful glossary in English, Portuguese and German introduces lay readers to the scientific terminology. An invaluable aid for all plant lovers in the Azores: Students, teachers, farmers, rangers, scientists, tourists.
This field handbook is the result of over fifteen years’ experience of forestry operations under projectsconducted by CIRAD. It sets out to fill a gap in the literature available on the flora of the dry zones of West Africa. Its 1 300 colour photographs of flowers, fruits, leaves and bark will facilitate identification of each of the 360 species presented. As trees are an integral part of the landscape and have many functions and uses, an up-to-date inventory is also given of the traditional uses of the different parts of plants for pharmaceutical and human and animal food purposes and in daily life. The determination keys and descriptive sheets are accessible to non-specialists in botany, be they technicians working in forestry, agriculture or animal production, teachers or students. This book is a reference for anyone in need of information on the trees and shrubs of the region.
