Advances in Floristics of the Swiss Flora

Advances 2017: Toxic plants are everywhere in our flora and have long been of interest to humans. For this year's Advances, we have selected some new records of very rare species of toxic plants spottet after the work by Welten & Sutter (1982) and some common species recorded between the last Red List of 2002 and the end of 2016. After this article, we hope to receive lots of new records of toxic plants.  → Download
