About the Book
The Canary Islands boast one of the richest and most unique floras in the world. This is the only book that covers all of the 650 species endemic to the islands, as well as all other naturally occurring plants. Wild Flowers is split into two sections, the first covering the history, origin, and use of the Canary flora and containing a guide to places of botanical interest. The second is a guide to the flora with keys and descriptions, followed by a glossary of botanical terms and an index to scientific and common plant names. This version is in English.
