New book: Illustrated flora of Alborz Mountain Range (Iran)
The Irano-Anatolian region is a global biodiversity hotspot harbouring an enormous number of plant species and a high proportion of endemics. Alborz is one of the richest mountain ranges of this region with more than 3,600 vascular plant species. Close to 20 years research experience on the flora and vegetation types of this mountain range and adjacent regions gave the authors the opportunity to photograph the plant species of the area and to illustrate them. In this book, a total of 1,584 vascular plant species of Alborz mountain range in 647 genera and 117 families are presented.
