Plants on Iceland

Flora of Iceland: Welcome to the plants section of the Natural History of Iceland site.
This section will offer you in a pleasant way information on the flora of Iceland.

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 on the background page. 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.
