Can anyone recommend a good website or book for identifying Portuguese plants (and trees if possible).

I'm looking for something that has good keying (eg find a plant by leaf shape, flowering time, etc) and covers wild plants ('weeds') not garden plants.

Something similar to Keble-Martin's UK plants would be best.

Hi,

Take a look at https://flora-on.pt/

Details of over 2000 species, including geographic distribution, flowering time, climatic preferences etc., together with an identification key (you chose the characteristics you can readily identify and it successively reduces the range of plants that match them).
