Plants and Habitats : An Introduction to Common Plants and Their Habitats in Britain and Ireland Paperback
by Ben Averis
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.
