Illustrated Field Guide to the Flora of Georgia
by E. Fischer, A. Gröger, W. Lobin
published in 2018

Georgia comprises an extraordinary range of ecosystems,
from humid Colchic forest to continental steppe, from
Mediterranean vegetation along the Black Sea coast to
alpine meadows next to glaciated peaks. So, this small
country is an important component of the biodiversity
hotspot that is the Caucasus ecoregion.
This field guide depicts more than 1.200 plant species,
what covers nearly a third of the Georgian  flora. Almost
all of the 3.500 photos have been taken in the wild.  The
species are grouped by family, and for each species relevant
information such as distribution range, distribution
in Georgia (shown in 1.010 maps), endemism, habitat,
flowering period and common synonyms are given.
The guide is designed as a practical companion for excursions,
both for nature enthusiasts and botanists.
The three authors are botanists, connected to German
Universities or Botanic Gardens. Since 1999, they are in
close contact with Georgian colleagues in Tbilisi and Batumi.
Together they conducted more than 20 excursions,
leading to most of the provinces of Georgia.
