Fra forlagets egen omtale:  

"Flora of the Azores- A Field Guide" is the first guide dealing with the plants of all nine islands of the Azores archipelago, the westernmost part of Europe, about 1300 km west of the Portuguese coast. This field guide was written for all friends of the very special flora of these volcanic islands: students, teachers, farmers, and especially tourists who need a fast and easy way to find out the name of a plant in the field. It provides short descriptions for 650 of the about 1200 species of vascular plants found in the islands, completed by 400 full-colour photographs. Not only the most prevalent species but also rare and unusual plants are illustrated and described, some of them for the very first time. 

Much emphasis is given to endemic species, that grow nowhere else in the world, like the almost extinct Myosotis azorica (Boraginaceae) or Veronica dabneyi (Scrophulariaceae). The most important exotic plant invaders like the Asian species Hydrangea macrophylla (Hydrangeaceae), Hedychium gardneranum (Zingiberaceae), and Polygonum capitatum (Polygonaceae) that constitute a serious threat to natural ecosystems of the Azores are shown in detailed photographs. A glossary in English, Portuguese and German introduces the readers to the scientific terminology.
