The Flora Helvetica has become the standard for plant identification in Switzerland. In addition to the illustrated book, this new excursion guide complements the series. With the excursion volume, all vascular plants occurring in Switzerland can be identified with detailed and easy-to-understand identification keys, with great emphasis placed on well-recognizable, field-appropriate characteristics.
For many of the species featured, detailed drawings facilitate the identification. With data on habitat, flowering time and distribution, and illustrated with more than 3000 distribution maps, the most important additional information is obtained in a compact manner. The excursion guide was prepared and published by InfoFlora. It treats all 4000 wild species found on the official checklist of Infoflora for Switzerland and thus contains several hundred neophytes that have never been treated before in Swiss floras.
