About the book: 

1st Edition copy with 150 illustrations.  

This book describes the different kinds of natural vegetation found in Britain – woods, downs and hill pasture, heaths and moorland, mountain and bog, freshwater, fen and sea coast – tracing the history of changes in the face of the country since the Great Ice Age and through historical times, and looking also to the fate of our natural vegetation in the future. It aims at providing a good deal of solid information about our native plant life and the agencies that influence it, but it is written so as to be intelligible to all, the very few technical terms used being clearly explained. All plants mentioned are given their English names when they have any, the botanical name being usually added. The book is illustrated by numerous photographs.
