The Vegetative Key to the British Flora.by John Poland and Eric Clement
This novel approach to plant identification has received wide praise and is proving a popular guide.
Conventional field guides largely rely on flowers or fruit to aid identification: something all botanists find rather frustrating when out in the field. This key enables the user to easily identify nearly 3,000 native and alien plants without flowers or fruit, with nothing more than a hand lens.
The keys work just as well on plants in flower as selected floral and fruit characters, particularly ones not readily available in other Floras, have been included, especially in the comparatively few groups where they are essential.
