"I could not put it down. ...excellent illustrations and taxonomic descriptions... In short, it is my new favorite book." --HortScience
 


."..differ[s] from other incarnations of Flora of North America by including not only natives, but agricultural crops, ornamentals, research taxa, waifs (introduced species that have failed to become established), and plants identified by USDA as threats to American agriculture (the project was partially funded by several federal agencies). Illustrated with large, clear line drawings and cited in Guide to Reference Books." --SciTech Book News
