This is an original key for the naming of flowers, trees, grasses, sedges, rushes and ferns in the British Isles. No expert botanical knowledge is expected of the user and with a little practice the key can quickly be mastered. The key is not a descriptive flora but is a handy means to rapid identification which should be useful to students of all ages and to all who like to know the names of flowers, but are discouraged by more sophisticated wordy floras. This flora breaks new ground in wild flower identification in adopting a novel approach. It has its origins in courses run by the author where a simple field key was required that could give rapid results and was based upon easily seen characters. Subsequent extensive testing through the AIDGAP (Aids to Identification in Difficult Groups of Animals and Plants) organisation has further refined the key as a working tool for field and bench use.
