British Plant Communities: Volume 5, Maritime Communities and Vegetation of Open Habitats Paperback
Edited by J. S. Rodwell
Part of the British Plant Communities series
British Plant Communities is the first systematic and comprehensive account of the vegetation types of this country.
It covers all natural, semi-natural and major artificial habitats in Great Britain (but not Northern Ireland), representing the fruits of fifteen years of research by leading plant ecologists.
The book breaks new ground in wedding the rigorous interest in the classification of plant communities that has characterized Continental phytosociology with the deep concern traditional in Great Britain to understand how vegetation works.
The published volumes have been greeted with universal acclaim, and the series has become firmly established as a framework for a wide variety of teaching, research and management activities in ecology, conservation and land-use planning.
