Flore du refuge de l’Hospice de France, for those who never visited the Pyrénées this destination should be the only one to visit on a first trip. You can easily find +/-350 species in a 4h walk.

Yann, many thanks for these hints - for me personally the paper concerning Sicily seems to be a good reason to visit
this floristically extraordinary island.

You can't be disapointed by Sicily, the central part is without any doubt the best zone to explore.
65% of the species are concatrated there. Good reading.

I still have many ebooks to share, hoping it gives travels ideas to some of you.

Yes, same as Gerdk, Yann - keep going. These guides are good also just for virtual trips from the comfort of the home :)

Well i'm back with a few ebooks, the pandemic is propitious to reading as we're unable to travel.

Back to Greece (and again some will say  :P )

The mount Olympos, the mountains of the Gods. For those who already visited the region you know the diversity found from the forests surrounding the mountains to the top. 3 to 4 days are a minimum to explore 1% of the area, 65 endemics are found in the last 400 meters before the summit.

Books is in greek but you can copy/past to any translator or for the laziest the vision of the images will make you travel  ;)

Another marvelous mountain: the Parnassos

Not far Delphi and its famous archeological site, the Parnassos range extends up to Vardousia mountains.
Flora can be very late to bloom despite all what is written in the books, north sides are home of many botanical treasures.

One hour driving from Athens the mount Parnitha is often neglected by botanist while it's a very interesting zone.

Flore descriptive et illustrée de la France de la Corse et des contrées limitrophes - Abbé Coste

This 3 volumes are sold at high price on ebay, despite being published in 1901 and 1903 it's still very sought-after.
Almost 2300 pages about french flora, off course no english description.

Oh how it's possible? i forgot the book about Mount Giona, Greece.
In 2010 i spent 10 days with a tent in these mountains, 2400 species grow there.
I think all alpines climates are found there from the dry calceorous cliffs to the wet bog.
