Information from the scientific literature, gatherers and consumers of wild greens that are an important part of the Mediterranean diet, my experience on plants growing in the wild, detailed observations on key descriptors and habitat of wild edible and poisonous plants are all that produced the knowledge provided in this book.
In addition, the placement of photos along with the text helps a lot in identifying and studying the basic features of a plant's species. After that, one can identify a plant in nature safely because they already know the characteristics of that plant.
Aside from the above, this book reintroduces the forgotten traditions of the Mediterranean diet, which is based on wild greens and is therefore considered a standard of healthy eating. Specifically, the following information is provided for each species of wild greens: * Common, scientific and given names by Theophrastus and Dioscorides.
* Key features of identification.
* Origin, distribution in countries around the world, habitat and ecology.
* Edible plant parts, season of gathering, ways of eating and cooking.
* Propagation.
* It also informs the reader about 174 Dioscorides's plants.
