About the Authors
  • British Plant Communities is the first systematic and comprehensive account of the vegetation types of Britain. It covers all natural, semi-natural and major artificial habitats in Great Britain (but not Northern Ireland), representing the fruits of fifteen years of research by leading plant ecologists. The series breaks new ground in wedding the rigorous interest in the classification of plant communities that has characterized Continental phytosociology with the deep concern traditional in Great Britain to understand how vegetation works. The published volumes have been greeted with universal acclaim, and the series has become firmly established as a framework for a wide variety of teaching, research and management activities in ecology, conservation and land-use planning.

    • Paperback edition will bring the book within the reach of a much wider audience
    • The classification scheme pioneered in this book has become the standard for conservation and ecology in the United Kingdom
    • Market extends beyond the academic world to conservation professionals and enthusiastic amateurs

    "This series represents an outstanding achievement of descriptive plant ecology." M. J. Crawley, Trends in Ecology and Evolution

    "The fruit of nearly a quarter century of effort, this series on British plant communities represents an exceptional and comprehensive compilation that will become a classic and vital reference for ecologists and botanists. It is a pleasure to see the publication of such a careful and valuable contribution and one that also sets a new standard for field ecological surveys." Plant Science Bulletin
