A popular new book is Richard Mabey's Flora Britannica 
(Sinclair-Stevenson, 1996. ISBN 1 85619 377 2). It deals with the 
ancient and modern uses and folklore of about a thousand species of 
tress, shrubs and herbs, and is the result of a four-year project. It 
will tell even experienced botanists a lot about the social context of 
the subjects of their work or hobby and is well illustrated with many 
good colour photographs. It costs UKP30.00.

If your brother and his wife do not already have it, it would make an 
excellent Xmas present.
