Albania is possibly the most rapidly growing tourist-destination worldwide. However, detailed and easily accessible information to the country´s richest treasury, its enormous biodiversity, is still scarce.

This identification guide is the first book in English that covers all the wild plants of a Balkan country, thereby including also a nearly complete and fully coloured iconography. More briefly treated are a few plant genera still insufficiently studied in Albania, e.g. largely apomictic groups like Taraxacum, Rubus, Alchemilla, Hieracium or notorious difficult grass-genus Festuca. Naturalists relying more on photos than on collected material hopefully will be able to determine most of the plants alone by comparison with the 5769 individual illustrations. This should be possible even in more critical groups (e.g. Apiaceae, Brassicaceae, grasses, sedges), due to many detailed illustrations, showing fruits, seeds etc. For each species, additional information such as flowering-time, life form, preferred habitat is given in the dichotomous keys. Relevant sources are documented in a comprehensive reference-list.


A nearly complete iconography with 377 colour plates, containing 5769 single illustrations

Numerous colour macro-photos showing relevant plant-details (seeds, fruits etc.)

Dichotomous keys for the determination of species and often also subspecies

A comprehensive list of cited literature
