Naxos topoGuide: Glaucium flavum

Several researchers of Botany, mainly from N. Europe, have collected plant materila from Naxos, there is, however, no complete work on the flora of the island as a whole (a work, of course, particularly ambitious and demanding). From the individual collections and the published works is estimated that the total number of plant taxa (species and subspecies) of the island is around 1000.
