Quick Reference

A group of plant species that has marked geographical affinities. The flora of a given territory includes different geographical elements. For example, the Mediterranean element in the British flora comprises 38 species, concentrated in the extreme south and south-west of England. The majority are flowering annuals or biennials, categories of plants well represented in the sunny Mediterranean. When the full ranges of the 38 species are examined, they are all found to occur in the Mediterranean basin, with northerly extensions to Britain.
