Well a bit of search engine "tags" and you can find a lot of thinks you won't find using the search interface.

Thank you Yann! I'll ask one of my sons (or grandchildren) for some guidance in order to become fitter on the internet. I hope they will not lose patience   :)

Allez another one, i know a lot of people here visited Spain, this ebook contains an impressive amount of infos about the natural parks. Spain has the richest european flora with more than 6700 species and a huge diversity of landscapes, minerals, climates.
Enjoy, for those not reading spanish you can translate as i mentionned few posts before. You'll find maps and details.

A great identification guide for the genius Ranunculus (164p), the doc is in french but photos and dimensions are universal. :)

Morroco is another country i visited numerous times, our respective countries having very long relations, long before Charlemagne.

The following document is about the Atlas, in french.
It's great for all those who want very detailed information about sites to visit (GPS for all of them described).

It's still winter and many of us are dreaming of mountains covered with flowers, well untill late spring here's a book about La Vanoise Park. Content is in french but photos and maps will let you find the rare plants and fauna.

For those prefering the Atlantic's wind the Algarve is the portuguese region to visit. Well known from botanists and naturalists, the region has spawned numerous naturalist works. Little few with precise maps of hotspots. Here's one free, in german (188p).

From Todd Boland in Newfoundland:

"Got some great news today! My co-authored book devoted to gardening  under acidic soil conditions is now off to the printers with expected release in June. Do you have acidic soil? If so this book is for you!"



One to look out for!
