    schema:description "`The second edition of this remarkable and now indispensable Flora of the vascular plants of the British Isles is much improved over the 1991 edition. I regret this edition was unavailable when I prepared my article "Some desiderata to make Floras and other types of works user (and reviewer) friendly", which compared 24 Floras. Stace's would have ranked "Among the very best of Floras".' Taxon."@en ;
    schema:description "In the 12 years since the appearance of the Second Edition, many new data and ideas relating to our wild flora have become available. More than 160 species have been added to the text, so that 4800 taxa are now covered in varying degrees of detail. This is the first British Flora to incorporate the new molecular system of classification based on DNA sequences, a scheme that is expected to endure for centuries to come. The whole text has been updated and new features have been introduced. All the line-drawings and half-tones have been re-assessed and enhanced, and new ones have been added, so that now over 1600 species are illustrated on 180 pages. The distributions of all the taxa have been rewritten and there has been an overhaul of the designation of degrees of rarity, with the introduction of a third, less rare, category."@en ;
