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 taxomic information, a large amount of supplementary data of general biological interest and ecomic interest is provided, as well as tes on vernacular names. Nearing completion, it fills a major gap in the floral kwledge of Iraq.
