Theophrastus: Περὶ φυτῶν ἱστορίας – Enquiry into Plants

The text presented here has been copied from Hort's Loeb edition of the HP, now in the public domain and made available in scanned book form by the Internet Archive. I have omitted all notes and footnotes, but have retained Hort's section headings: these are shown in italic, between square brackets.

Only part of the text has been added so far: further sections will follow gradually.
