Abstract

As in any other region, the plant life of the Canary Islands is divided into three larger groups: the native elements, the involuntarily introduced (or escaped) elements or ‘weeds’, and the cultivated plants. Such a division is relatively easy to document if a given area is an island, or a group of islands, with the most natural borderline around: the sea.
