This series represents supplementary volumes of Flora Mediterranea, a journal published by īThe Herbarium Mediterraneum` on behalf of OPTIMA and the support of various Organizations. It includes monographies and other major works on Mediterranean botanical subjects. Bocconea is dedicated to Paolo (Silvio) Boccone (1633-1704), a famous Sicilian botanist and naturalist, one of the founding fathers of Mediterranea botany. He published in 1697 the "Museo di piante rare" where are described and illustrated a great number of plants from several Mediterranean countries.
