Hello,

Can anybody recommend any guides to Corsican flora and fauna? (even for wider Mediterranean these seem surprisingly hard to come by!)

Cheers!
Harry

The only one that I have is 'Wild Flowers of the Mediterranean' which seems to cover the plant life of most of the islands. Domino Guide published by A and C Black.

Hello,

there is a book published by Jacques Gamisans and Jean-Francois Marzocchi: La Flore endémique de la Corse (Edisud 1996) ISBN 2-85744-777-9. It is written in french and contains the endemic plant species of corse with relatively good pictures. It is structured based on the vegetation levels - a very interesting book, if you understand the language. Another book is the Flora Corsica. It contains a scientific identification key but is not available anymore. If anybody knows were to get it, please tell me.

Best regards!

AG

Quite interesting although it's only about Castagniccia.
It's a pity it's in English and of course French language only.

Cheers!
