'This series represents an outstanding achievement of descriptive plant ecology.' M. J. Crawley, Trends in Ecology and Evolution ' ... an excellent series of reference volumes.' Mineral Planning 'What more can be said ... indispensable.' Bulletin of the British Ecological Society '... the completion of the NVC has been well worth waiting for, and this is a significant culmination of a nationally important project. It has provided a common language and standard for ecologists which it is now impossible to do without. Every plant ecologist should have the set on his or her shelves.' Tim Rich, British Wildlife 'The British Plant Communities series, an essential addition to an ecologist's or plant conservationist's library, ought to set trends and standards worldwide for the study and management of vegetation ... The vegetation team and their many collaborators are to be congratulated on realizing such a useful, readable publication.' Plant Talk 'The publication of this fifth and final volume ... completes one of the most notable achievements in British ecology: the first comprehensive phytosociological classification of British vegetation.' P. Lusby, Edinburgh Journal of Botany ' ... there is much in this book that will be of interest both to those who embrace and those who do not embrace the phytosociological approach towards vegetation.'
