I have recently returned from Italy, on vacation, and would like to use some of what I learned to share with media specialists. One area I had difficulty finding information on was the plants and trees that are native or common in Italy. I even tried over there for a book on this, but could find no information available in English. Is there any type of database that I could search to get this information?
