Description:

Britain's mountains – and the exposed sub-arctic regions of her far north – are home to a staggering range of specialist flowers, shrubs and ferns. These plants are able to thrive on our islands due to conditions unusual in mainland Europe. The peculiarities of their occurrence here, at unusually low altitudes for typically alpine species and unusually far south for typically arctic species, make their ecology especially intriguing.

In a journey that ranges from The Lizard of Cornwall to Unst in Shetland, Mountain Flowers looks at the British sites that support the richest mountain flora, and discusses the ecology and distribution of the key montane and submontane plants, with a particular focus on the conservation of the rarest species.

It is a book that will have much to offer wildflower enthusiasts and botanists – not least in its lavish illustrations – and will be an indispensable companion for hill walkers and climbers wanting to learn about the plants that are such an intrinsic part of the British mountain landscape.
