* Atmospheric mountain photography and panoramic fold-out pages* Special features on flora and fauna* Information and web addresses on protected areas and regions Britain and Ireland have so much to offer. The Gulf Stream is responsible for the development of many unique natural landscapes, and Britain's countless natural wonders have one thing in common: the color green. Whether in Ireland, Scotland, or England, whether on the Shetland Islands or on the Isle of Man - green prevails everywhere. The islands' vast moors, steep cliffs and gentle hills are not only the habitat of many animals, but also of abundant flora - prospering here in all its diversity. The rich fauna is comprised of birds of prey such as the red kite and the peregrine falcon, while sheep and ponies are found on the mainland, and seals and northern gannets in the coastal regions. UNESCO protected areas and national parks such as Wester Ross and Galloway, Snowdonia and Dartmoor, Copper Coast and Killarney give a glimpse of the unique beauty of the nature of the British Isles.

The new edition includes a Foreword by Ed Stafford, as well as a completely new chapter introducing the exciting new English Coastal Path, opening 2020 after years of campaigning.

The is the first fully-illustrated and fully-mapped guide to the British and Irish flora, covering more than 1900 species. Its restriction to the British Isles alone allows far more detail and more local information, and identification is made easier with the inclusion of maps for most species.

Also featured is an illustrated survey of recently disappeared British and Irish plants, some of which may return. With over 5000 detailed colour paintings and more than 1600 maps, this is the most extensively illustrated wild flower guide to Britain and Ireland yet. Coloured, boxed keys to plants in complex or difficult groups are provided to assist identification. The Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland also features information about grasses, which are often omitted in other, shorter books, along with sedges, rushes, horsetails and clubmosses. Ferns, though not strictly speaking flowering plants, are also included. This new edition is fully revised to take into account recent taxonomic changes, as well as changes in status and distribution.

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves. I've spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles. I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. A NOTE ON PHOTOS Most wild flower books only provide one photo of each plant for identification. Then a little bit of botanical description. Usually using words that don't mean anything to anybody, unless you are a botany geek. To forage plants safely, you need a specialist plant identification book. Which is why in this book there are no pictures, nor a botanical profile. NICE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE PREVIOUSLY SAID Robin's infectious encyclopaedic enthusiasm is borne from complete commitment to his chosen field. - Michael Kusz You transported us to a whole new level of awareness of not only the plants we got to see, smell and taste, but also the relationship that is possible with our natural environment that most of us have lost over just a single generation. - Richard & Debbie Stansfield My love of the plants and my interaction with them was given a massive boost by your knowledge. - Pip Martin ABOUT THE AUTHOR Robin Harford is a plant-based forager, ethnobotanical researcher and wild food educator. He has published over 50 foraging guide books. He established his wild food foraging school in 2008, and his foraging courses were recently voted #1 in the country by BBC Countryfile. Robin is the creator of eatweeds.co.uk, which is listed in The Times Top 50 websites for food and drink. He has travelled extensively documenting and recording the traditional and local uses of wild food plants in indigenous cultures, and his work has taken him to Africa, India, SE Asia, Europe and the USA. Robin regularly appears on national and local radio and television. He has been recommended in BBC Good Food magazine, Sainsbury's magazine as well as in The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph etc.

Each entry gives Latin and common names; descriptions of flowers, fruit, and leaves; and habitat. Anecdotes on historical background, medicinal or herbal uses, and common folklore breathe life into the text. Chapters also discuss the importance of wild flowers in their ecosystems, conservation and endangered species and offer advice on designing your own wildflower garden.
