This series fulfills the urgent need for the synthesis, at the international or continental level, of the taxonomic and geobotanical information scattered throughout the world in innumerable herbaria and botanical papers. These volumes provide all the distribution maps so far produced by the Committee for mapping the flora of Europe in convenient library editions and in the format and livery of Flora Europaea. They thus form an essential reference linked to the flora itself, and will be invaluable to professional botanists. Volume III contains the Caryophyllaceae (Flora Europaea family).

From the point of view of plant geography, including various aspects of chorology, one of the prerequisites of successful large-scale synthesis of this type is and adequate flora covering the area in question, and providing a common language in respect to the delimitation and nomenclature of the taxa to be treated. This essential conditon is now fulfilled for Europe by the current volumes of Flora Europaeae.Review:
