Webb's an Irish Flora

Webb’s an Irish Flora is the 8th edition of this work, and was published in 2012. It keys out, describes and gives habitat flowering time and geographical information on all the species of higher plant that grow on the whole island of Ireland; some are illustrated and if a common name exists in Irish or English it is stated. It includes all native species, and aliens and hybrids for which there are five or more post 1987 records. The arrangement of families follows, where applicable, the APGIII scheme. This work was amongst the first floras to be phylogenetically arranged by any of the APG systems and remains the only work specifically covering Ireland. For copyright reasons only the descriptions will be included in the World Flora Online Portal.
