A Field Guide, Third enlarged edition

This field guide of the wildflowers in the Azores islands provides short species portraits with full- colour photographs for 645 vascular plants growing wild in the archipelago and mentions key distinguishing characters for the remaining species. More than 1100 of the about 1200 species of the flora of the Azores are covered in this book, the most comprehensive treatment for these islands. Not only the most common species but also rare and unusual plants of thrilling beauty are illustrated and described, some of them for the first time.

Much emphasis is given to endemic species that can be found nowhere else in the world and invasive plant species that have been introduced to the Azores from all over the globe. They describe a serious threat to the native ecosystems in the archipelago. In addition to the scientific name, the Portuguese, English, German, and French names are given for each species. A glossary in English, Portuguese and German helps readers to better understand the scientific terminology.

An invaluable aid for all plant lovers in the Azores: students, teachers, farmers, rangers, scientists, tourists.

Carex L. (Cyperaceae) in Europe, Vol 1;
Accepted names, hybrids, synonyms, distribution, chromosome numbers.

About the book

On 21 December 2011 Carex Europaea, volume 1, was published. This book was sold out rather quickly, so in 2015 was decided to produce an updated e-book version. In the e-book some improvements were made on the text of the 2011 version. Besides, literature within the period 2011-2015 had been taken into account. And now, in 2021, a third, completely updated edition will be published. This book is a documentary book about the nomenclature and distribution of European taxa and hybrids within the genus Carex (Cyperaceae). Of all European taxa are given their accepted names and all known synonyms, both with full citation. Altogether there are more than 4500 names involved. Of all taxa is given their distribution within Europe per country, and worldwide is given their general distribution. Providing they are known 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. In the back of the book more than 140 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». This book aims to be a reference work for everybody working in the field of Botany or Nature Management or interested in the genus Carex.

Endemische Alpenpflanzen

Das mächtigste und größte Gebirge Europas sind die Alpen. Sie erstrecken sich von den Ligurischen Alpen im Südwesten bis zum Wiener Schneeberg im Osten über eine Länge von mehr als 1.000 km und eine mittlere Breite von etwa 200 km. Über Jahrmillionen haben sich großartige und unterschiedliche Gebirgslandschaften gebildet.

In ihnen finden wir mit etwa 5.000 Pflanzenarten eine vielfältige, aber auch eigenständige Pflanzenwelt vor. Viele Pflanzen arten kommen ausschließlich in den Alpen vor, die Alpenendemiten. Im vorliegenden Buch stellen die Autoren mehr als 500 dieser Endemiten vor. Auf etwa 750 Fotos wird jede dieser Arten mit einem Foto, bei einigen Arten zur besseren Unterscheidung mit einem zusätzlichen Detailfoto abgebildet.

Im allgemeinen Teil werden die erdgeschichtliche Entstehung und die Florengeschichte der Alpen, die Entstehung der Endemiten, ihre pflanzensystematische Verteilung, ihre Lebensräume und ihre Hauptverbreitungszentren beschrieben und mit 70 typischen Landschaftsfotos vorgestellt. Im speziellen Teil werden die einzelnen Arten ausführlich beschrieben und mit Fotos dargestellt.

Diverse anderen werden geintroduceerd als groente of sierplant. Naast duidelijke morfologische beschrijvingen en gebruiksvriendelijke sleutels, biedt dit boek een overvloed aan informatie over de verspreiding, ecologie, het gebruik en de bedreiging van alle soorten.

ENG: This volume deals with the bindweed family (Convolvulaceae) of Central Africa. In this area, the family is represented by 23 genera and 132 species, including the well-known crop sweet potato. Several others were introduced as vegetable or ornamental plants. In addition to clear morphological descriptions and user-friendly keys, this volume provides abundant information on the distribution, ecology, use and threat of all species.

The Flore du Gabon series provides access to the information on the great botanical wealth of this central African country, reputedly harbouring the richest lowland rain forest in Africa. With 12.5% of all plant species being endemic to the country and some 85% of its surface being covered with a highly diverse lowland rain forest, Gabon is a botanical paradise and hotspot. Over 10% of its surface is under protection, which renders this country a Mecca for conservationists, ecotourism and scientists. For an effective conservation management, but also to support a wise and sustainable use of this unique diversity, it is essential to be able to simply identify the plants that play such an important role, be it as food for gorillas, birds, etc., as medicine, nutrition or timber, or just as one of these essential elements of the ecological network. The Flore du Gabon provides this essential tool for reliable identification, its editorial team making sure the identification keys are simple and straightforward, descriptions having diagnostic features stand out in bold, and clarifying illustrations. As such, it hopes to assist researchers, foresters, conservationists, amateur botanists and policy makers alike and to contribute to the survival of Gabon’s unique biodiversity.

 

The Flore du Gabon series was started in 1961 by the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (MNHN) in Paris and until 2004 no less than 37 volumes were published dealing with about 80 families and over 2200 species. In 2006, the Wageningen branch of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands (NHN), now part of Naturalis Biodiversity Center, who had built up their knowledge on the Gabonese flora for over 35 years, continued its production. In 2014, the series was continued jointly by Meise Botanic Garden and Naturalis. End of 2018, almost 3300 species have been dealt with, while around 1250 await their treatment.

 

For this final challenge, additional funding was obtained from the Alberta Mennega Foundation. This should render it feasible to produce two or three volumes each year and finish the Flore du Gabon series by 2023.
