The Flora of Iraq is the only flora for this region in the Middle East. It enables anyone documenting, studying and/or managing Iraq’s vast and rich flora to identify the vascular cryptograms and flowering plants.

In addition to the detailed taxonomic information, a large amount of supplementary data of general biological interest and economic interest is provided, as well as notes on vernacular names.

Nearing completion, it fills a major gap in the floral knowledge of Iraq. Volume 6 covers the Compositae in its entirety.
