Flora Hellenica Bibliography
List of publications........1
This is the second edition of a bibliography listing
books and articles relevant to Flora Hellenica. The first edition, which was
published in 1996, comprised 10,241 entries, and the number has subsequently
grown to 13,276, or an increase by 30 per cent. Titles have been selected
according to the following criteria:
1. All floristic publications relating
to Greek territory.
2. Floristic publications for adjacent areas (Balkan
Peninsula, W and S Turkey, Cyprus, Italy, etc.) when considered relevant to
3. All taxonomic (including nomenclatural) papers dealing with Greek
4. Other major taxonomic works involving Greek taxa.
Phytogeographical and phytosociological literature with a Greek aspect.
Literature dealing with chromosome data for taxa represented in Greece. Papers
in the fields of ecology, horticulture, phytochemistry, pharmacognosy,
anatomy, palynology, plant physiology, etc., are listed only when including
data of taxonomic or floristic interest. In horticulturally popular groups such
as bulbous monocots the literature is vast and only publications relevant to our
purpose have been included. Papers dealing with phylogeny at the level of
families and genera have mostly been excluded.
Unpublished (typewritten or
mimeographed) floristic lists or similar lists published on the internet have
been included only when considered to be of particular interest. Individual
accounts of families and genera in major Floras (e.g., Hegi, Flora of Turkey and
Flora Europaea) have not been separately listed.
For taxonomic papers it is
sometimes arbitrary whether they should be included or not. Monographs are
usually listed even when marginally relevant; for other publications coverage is
less complete. A taxonomic revision of a group of Centaurea in Spain, for
instance, will probably be excluded if none of the taxa occur in Greece, whereas
a revision of Sagina in North America will be included if it amounts to a
monographic treatment also involving Greek taxa.
Coverage for chromosome
literature has by necessity been less comprehensive for counts not based on
Greek material. For a more complete listing of the very scattered publications,
reference to the standard chromosome number atlases is recommended.
98 per cent of the titles have been studied and verified by the author.....
