Reviews

A mine of information!detailed and authoritative !very readable !The sheer breadth of the information in this volume must make it an invaluable asset to any naturalist interested in lowland Scotland. A handsome and inexpensive volume that handles well ! This is a book that Scottish and northern botanists will not wish to be without. Useful and attractive book. I salute the organisational skill which defined the project's framework and maintained interest over such a long period, producing at the end a book which will indeed be 'of value to Scottish society' ! It is a very valuable contribution to Scottish botany and sets a high standard for future local Floras.
