Wild Flowers of the North Highlands of Scotland is a stunning volume of photographs and detailed descriptions which reveals the intricate beauty of plant life in the far north of Scotland. Botanist Ken Butler and photographer Ken Crossan have teamed up to interpret one of the most wonderfully wild landscapes in Britain, with miles of varied and magnificent coast, the empty and fascinating peatlands of the Flow Country, wetland plants of the river banks and loch margins and a range of woodland types arising from the subtle ecological differences of soil and climate. Each species discussed is accompanied by photographs and notes of how to identify them, while the habitats in which each species is to be found, including factors of geology, climate, history and plant competition which make that habitat what it is, are also examined.
