About the Authors
  • Finding, naming, and classifying plants is a field that is continually evolving. This book contains a list of all the vascular plants (most plants, save algaes and mosses) found in the vast territory of the former USSR extending from the Barents, Baltic and Black Seas to the Pacific Ocean, from the Arctic to the almost subtropical zone in Asia. The list comprises over 22,000 species and subspecies of wild, naturalized and adventive plants relating to 1,945 genera and 216 families. The book also includes hybrid genera, the most widely distributed cultivated plants and 203 species that may be found within the territory, since they occur in neighboring countries. This book is an enlarged and critically revised edition of the original Russian language edition, Vascular Plants of the USSR (1981). This new edition has taken into account the numerous changes in the composition, taxonomy and nomenclature of the vascular plants of the former USSR that have been recognized since then.

    • A complete identification list of plants for the former Soviet Union available in English
    • An essential purchase for those people studying the flora of this region

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...includes a very large number of indigenous plants that are widely cultivated in gardens throughout the temperate zones....an important tool not only for students of the temperate and arctic floras of Europe and Asia but also for horticulturalists throughout the temperate zones." Choice

    "I would recommend this book for the libraries of botanical institutions all over the world. Botanists working with systematics or floristics of temperate plants have a new important book to add to their reference works." Lena Struwe. Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club
