The first single, comprehensive book on plant communities in the British uplands, bringing together all the upland communities described in the National Vegetation Classification, together with a number of previously undescribed assemblages of plant species. A key enables the user to classify vegetation in the field and up-to-date distribution maps provide many new localities for communities. Detailed sections on ecology, conservation and management are given for each community. The book builds on the classification and content of British Plant Communities, edited by John Rodwell.
