Where did the humble daisy originate? Is it true dandelions and nettles were here before us? What should you do if you come face to face with a giant hogweed? What are the plants that make our forty shades of green? Where do they grow? Combining modern and ancient Irish botanical studies, Flora Hibernica describes the special landscape and plant combinations of this damp, diverse island. After an overview of the past, the factors that shaped Ireland s flora over the last 10,000 years are presented as background to today s landscape. The book describes, chapter by chapter, the plants associated with specific habitats, e.g. seashore, woodlands, boglands, profusely illustrated in colour. Regional variations within habitat zones are included, and particular attention is paid to plants unique to each habitat.
