Plants of Iceland

This section presents information on plant species on Iceland.
The plant species are organized in natural groups. This page ("entries start") can be used as a starting point to search for Icelandic plant species (photo's an descriptions).

I drew up the The Natural History of Iceland site from personal enthousiasm. It does not pretend to be complete, however all common, nearly all rather less common species and quite a few rare species are treated. A characteriztion of the flora of Iceland can be found in the background pages. Also you can find further information on Icelandic plants on the "links" pages and the books & literature page (both can be found in the "more topics" section). If you want to retrieve info on a specific plant species you can open the search page.
Unless stated otherwise, all photo's shown here have been made on Iceland by Dick Vuijk.
