|Brambles of the British Isles
Edees & Newton
|This volume was published by the Ray Society in 1988. It covers 307 species, with 98 herbarium plates, and UK distribution maps for each species.
"This is an account of those brambles found growing wild in the British Isles. It is not, however, a complete record of the genus Rubus in these islands, but rather a further milestone on the road to that elusive but desirable destination. Had we in the course of our studies described as a new species every local additional taxon of distinct appearance encountered in the field the present total of 300+ different scientific names might easily have been increased to 500 or more".
Pisces Conservation have worked on the book with the kind permission of the Ray Society. We are delighted to release "Brambles" on CD, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation.
The quality of reproduction of illustrations and text is excellent.
The book is in Adobe Acrobat pdf format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates.
