Wildflowers of Ireland.



by Joe Devlin. 

Dufour Editions, 2012. Hardcover. New. Ireland's countryside wild flowers, of landscape and ecosystem. Personal record of Irish wild flowers, photographed by Zoe. When Zoe Devlin was shown a wild orchid by a relative, the late Dr. kathleen Lynn, it sparked a lifelong interest in wildflowers. Here is Zoe's personal record of the wildflowers that adorn Ireland's countryside, presented so those without botanical knowledge can gain a greater understanding of the subject. Passionate about this often-overlooked part of our natural heritage. Zoe embellishes descriptions and photographs of the plants with herbal and literary references and related Irish folklore. She describes over 400 commonly found wildflowers as well as some not-so-common and even rare species. This book creates a new awareness and wider picture of the world of wildflowers in Ireland. In presenting this book, Zoe Devlin says: "Conservation of our wildflowers is of the utmost importance as they are now facing threats on several different sides, and she expresses a hope that "through education and awareness of the diversity of our wildflowers, perhaps, just perhaps the tide can be held back a little longer."
