The Wild Plants of the Burren & Aran Islands



The Burren and the Aran Islands are renowned worldwide for their beautiful wildflowers and plants. Charles Nelson has selected 139 of the most widely occurring plus a number of special and elusive plants, including the recently rediscovered Arctic sandwort. 

By illustrating each plant with a colour photograph showing it in the wild, alongside space to record the place and date of discovery, this becomes a souvenir of rambles in search of wildflowers. Introduced by short chapters on the region plus user instructions, the photographs are grouped according to flower colour and pages are colour-coded so one can flick to the appropriate section.
