What does Flora mean?

Flora means: Plant rich in a certain region or period, and descends from the Roman goddess of flowers (and spring). Basically, a flora describes the wild plants of a particular area, or a particular selection of those plants. Sometimes the word is also used for reference works describing cultivated plants, but that is an exception. The forerunners of the modern Flora's are the herb books.
