Unread, unmarked. Scotland is rich in native flora and this book highlights a selection of over 40 of the rarest and most interesting species. The text of Scottish Wild Plants provides a wealth of detailed information about each of the plants. Plant profiles and how to identify them are noted, as well as their particular ecological needs and their current status - whether they are striving or declining. The photographs taken by Sidney Clarke at locations throughout Scotland illustrate the attractiveness and visual impact of these plants, as well as the range of plant types from the Scots pine to the tiny Iceland purslane. These photographs also illustrate the variety and quality of Scottish habitats in which the selection of species grow. Scottish Wild Plants also includes sections on the range of habitat types found throughout Scotland, especially those, such as mountain ledges, calcareous grasslands and wetlands, where many of the rarest plants survive. ; 116 pages
