Nakhutsrishvili, George

The Vegetation of Georgia (South Caucasus). 2012. (Geobotany Studies. Basics, Methods and Case Studies). col. figs. illus. XV, 235 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
The book describes richness and diversity of Georgias vegetation. Contrasting ecosystems coexist on the relatively small territory of the country and include semi-deserts in East Georgia, Colchic forests with almost sub-tropical climate in West Georgia and subnival plant communities in high mountains. West Georgia lacks xerophilous vegetation zone and mesophilous forest vegetation spreads from the sea level to subalpine zone. The Colchic refugium (West Georgia) ensured survival of the Tertiarys mesophilous forest flora. Vertical profile of the vegetation is more complex in East Georgia with semi desert, steppe and arid open forest zone. In South Georgia the montane zone represented by montane steppe is devoid of forests.
