Book information:

This book is the third title in the popular “Ranger Knowledge” series. It contains numerous descriptions of edible wild plants and wild fruits of European vegetation. The book is fully illustrated in colour and all photographs are extra large to make plant identification easier for the reader.

This plant book breaks new ground. While other titles were mainly designed to list as many different plants as possible that were used as food by people in the past, this book for the first time put special emphasis on usability. Some plants are considered edible, but are in fact almost inedible in taste. Others have ingredients that could be harmful to humans. Since in most cases too little is known about these substances even today, such plants have been excluded here. For the sake of completeness, however, these plants are listed in an extra topic area. In this way, anyone interested can look up why a plant in question should perhaps better not be consumed and make their own decision.

The section “Special Wild Foods” provides information on the usefulness of tree resins, lichens, grasses, cambium, marine algae, mosses and needle shoots. And a lot of other additional information rounds off this reference book.
