Mountain Flowers and Trees of Caucasia

Mountain Flowers and Trees of Caucasia

Shamil Shetekauri, Martin Jacoby and Tolkha Shetekauri

Available from mid September 2018. The mountains of Caucasia lie between the Black and Caspian Seas and on the boundary between Europe and Asia. They include the highest, most dramatic, least spoiled and least known mountain ranges of the northern hemisphere after the Himalayas and Rockies. The area supports about 6,400 species of vascular plant of which a quarter occur nowhere else (i.e. they are endemic to the region), and about 850 species of vertebrate animal of which some 120 are endemic. This is the highest percentage of endemism in the temperate world, and makes Caucasia one of the most important hotspots of biodiversity on Earth.

'Mountain Flowers and Trees of Caucasia' describes and illustrates in full colour nearly all the wild flowers, trees and shrubs that can be found over 1,000 metres above sea level 1,009 species. The authors hope that Mountain Flowers and Trees of Caucasia will encourage you to visit the mountains of Caucasia to delight in their unique and spectacular assemblage of flowering plants, and so contribute to its conservation.

The authors include an overview of vegetation in Caucasia, along with a key to families, and keys to genera of selected families. 392 pages.
