Europeans sure know how to produce pithy guidebooks that are models of economic presentation. Hoppes compact guidebook is a standout. It covers Europes Alps, a 1200-km arc straddling (from west to east) France, Monaco, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, and Slovenia, including Germany to the north and Italy to the south... Hoppe is a valuable travel companion. -- Rudolf Schmid * Taxon * The overall goal of this book, though, is to provide a comprehensive guide to the alpine flowers, in their diversity and beauty. In this, I think the authors have done quite well. The guide lists 500 species, and the content is easy to read and provides an efficient overview. With some practice and regular use, this book will be a nice field guide for first use and occasional reference and will stimulate the user to seek additional information from more comprehensive textbooks. -- Peter Schroeder * Plant Science Bulletin *
