Flora of the Czech Republic

Flora of the Czech Republic (nine volumes of which are planned) represents a series with the most detailed treatment of wild vascular plant species occurring in this country (native species, naturalized aliens and casuals) and more frequently outdoor cultivated taxa. The Flora includes comprehensive encyclopedic taxonomic and chorological information and identification keys to all the taxa. It is based on an original study of plant material, using contemporary methods of study. Each volume contains keys to genera (following the descriptions of families; key to families will be found at the beginning of the special part in vol. 1.), species (following the descriptions of genera) and subspecies (following the descriptions of species. Correct species name are followed by synonyms, exsiccates, description, chromosome number, variability, ecology and phytocenological characteristics, distribution in the Czech Republic, total geographic distribution and economic significance. Eight volumes have been published covering the treatment of 181 families, 861 genera and 2954 species, most of the species are depicted on 838 mostly full-page plates. Work on volume 9 is in progress.

The compendium is published by ACADEMIA, Publishing House of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
