Vol.24. Few parts of our British islands can compare with our sea coasts as a plant-hunting ground. Not only are many of the species of great beauty, but the communities of the plants, especially on salt marshes and sand-dunes, are of outstanding interest. This treats sea-coast plants not only as units in the ever-changing vegetation of sand, shingle and rock, but as individuals to be searched for and cherished. A chapter is devoted to the description and distribution to serve as an ecological guide and handbook for identification.
