Has anyone seen the new book "Flora of the Mediterranean with 
California, Chile, Australia, and South Africa: An illustrated guide" by 
Christopher Gardner and Basak Gardner? It's reviewed in the new NARGS 
Rock Garden Quarterly, but by the editor, who is not familiar with the 
plants that would interest PBS members. I'd be glad to hear other 
reviews before investing in it. The publisher is Bloomsbury Wildlife, 
and ISBN 97u8-1472970268. The Gardners have led many tours for the 
company Greentours, including one I participated in. She is a Turkish 
botanist; not sure of Chris's academic background, but he is a very good 
photographer. I think the book is primarily a photographic extravaganza. 
The additional countries following "with" have not been visited in depth 
by the authors, but they have led one or two tours there.
