A field guide to plants whose purpose is to facilitate their identification for students and enthusiasts.

With these figures, the guide aims to cover most of the vascular plants found in an area of Madrid extending from the foothills of the mountain sierra to the plains of the Jarama river valley, many of which are common throughout the Iberian Peninsula.
