All names used in current Floras or important monographs are cited in the text or index. The text, in English, uses a limited vocabulary, and there are glossaries of technical terms and Latin equivalents.

Review of the hardback: 'All botanists will welcome the continued rapid progress of the Flora … and we may all be pleased with the result.' Arthur Cronquist, Quarterly Review of Biology Review of the hardback: 'Flora Europaea is a triumph of international organisation and co-operation as well as a work of exceptionally high value and importance.' The Naturalist Review of the hardback: 'Cette grande entreprise internationale se poursuit de la façon la plus satisfaisante et la haute qualité de cet ouvrage de base, et déjà célèbre, continue à s'affirmer. La Flora Europaea constitue un monument de science et un exemple de collaboration internationale qui ne savraient se voir assez loués.' J. L. Monod, La Terre et La Vie
