Friedrich VDV, Austria
(2006) 448 pages, 4153 color photographs, hardcover
At present about 20 million visitors are pouring into Turkey each year, among them a considerable number with an interest in Turkey's natural beauties. Unfortunately, this desire to learn more about nature until now was hindered gravely by the lack of well illustrated literature. With 4153 species of ferns and flowering plants in full colour this book intends to close the gap. It should make plant identifications much easier for both, professional botanists but also interested "laymen" as entomologists, geographers, gardeners or naturalists.
Gerhard Pils finished his studies of Biology and Chemistry at the University of Vienna in 1981. Since then he is working as a high school teacher. In his spare time he published two books and a lot of papers about the ecology of Austrian meadows, plant life in Upper Austria, systematics of the genus Festuca (Poaceae) and the distributiion of Austrian plants. In 1995 he finished his inaugural dissertation at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna. In the following years he gave lectures there and at the University of Vienna. Between 1999 and 2004 Gerhard Pils worked as a teacher at the Austrian School in Istanbul. In that period he visited all regions of Turkey and climbed most of Anatolia's highest mountains. In 2005 he was forced to return to Austria because the Turkish Authorities withdrew his work permission, arguing that he became a danger to the security of the Turkish Republic.
