Klappentext

Excerpt from Edmondston's Flora of Shetland: Comprehending a List of the Prevalent Wild-Flowers, Horse-Tails, Club Mosses and Ferns of the Shetland Isles, Second Edition Natural Classification

As the first edition of this "Flora" stood, it was almost valueless from many points of view. The general arrangement was obsolete, the nomenclature was in many cases different from modern terms owing to change of opinion concerning species and variety. There were several inaccuracies of detail, natural to the age of the young author, and attributable also to the state of botanical knowledge in his day.

The chief value of the work lay in the fact that it was the first attempt to systematically study the Flora of the islands; and, while one cannot deny the fact that errors of identification and judgment crept into the pages, we cannot but admire the energy and enthusiasm which prompted a mere lad to undertake such a tremendous task.
