Flora of the Seychelles. 2014. approx. 1350 col. figs. 726 p. gr8vo.
This new plant-book focuses on the higher, flowering plants, which means that grasses, sedges, seagrasses and the ferns, mosses and clubmosses have been left out for some other time, and gives amongst others updated information about the flowering season; the preferred habitat; the local distribution; the estimated population size; the occurring frequency, i.e. being very common, less common, common, not common, rare, very rare etc.; the status, i.e. be it endemic, indigenous or introduced, and if indigenous, then native to which other country(ies), and if introduced then the presumed origin of the plant; the evt. status on the international list of threatened plants, the so called IUCN-list, and if displayed here, then being threatened to which degree. To that comes called etno-botanical or ethnographic botanical information, i.e.the use of the plant (locally and/or internationally) incl. the evt. medicinal use; if the plant is toxic some kind of degree; and the presumed origin or meaning behind the Latin, the common English and the local Creole names. Regarding the local Creole names, the book presents reviewed, new and by the Creole Institute accepted names to all of the presented plants, where some 40 previously had no local names. Most striking might however be the many high quality and on location taken photos ac-companying the descriptions. The book is furthermore divided into colour sections to ease a quick and reliable identification of the dif-ferent plants especially when being used as a field guide. And re. the use in nature, the book has been printed using a special print-polish which to some extend rejects drizzling rain. Finally the book includes an extended glossary and extended indexes for the English, Creole and Latin plant names. - There is a 2016 2nd edition of this book.
