New Flora of the British Isles (Ed 3)

A complete flora covering all naturalised introductions and frequent casuals as well as our native and archeophyte flora. Field and forestry crops and widely planted ornamental trees are also included. The apomictic genera: Rubus, Taraxacum and Hieracium are only treated as far as comparatively readily identifiable "sections".

The keys generally work well, but the species descriptions are very spare.
