Wild Plants of Madrid: Photographic Identification Key is a field guide written for students and enthusiasts. It is essentially a dichotomous key reinforced by a large collection of photographs, thus avoiding the use of highly specialized technical terminology. 692 species are illustrated, out of a total of 809 mentioned in the text. With these figures, the guide aims to cover most of the vascular plants found in an area of Madrid extending from the foothills of the mountain sierra to the plains of the Jarama river valley, many of which are common throughout the Iberian Peninsula.
