"Since its first publication in 1991, New Flora of the British Isles has become established as the standard work on the identification of the wild flowering plants, ferns and conifers of the British Isles. The Flora remains unique in many features, including its full coverage of all our wild plants in one volume, it's user-friendly organisation, and its specially compiled keys and descriptions. All native, naturalised, crop and repeatedly occurring casual plants are included...More than 200 species and hybrids have been added to the text of this fourth edition, and, in order to establish it as a truly twenty-first century flora, alien species that have not been recorded in the British Isles since 1999 (about 90 taxa) are omitted from the main text. The third edition (2010) was the first British Flora to incorporate the new molecular system of classification based primarily on DNA sequences, a scheme that is expected to endure for centuries to come at the family level. However, new discoveries from this research are continually being made, necessitating numerous further changes, particularly at the genus level, which have been incorporated in this fourth edition."--Back cover.
