This field guide, designed to assist natural area managers in recognizing nonnative and invasive plant species on lands that they manage will be of use to naturalists, horticulturists, landscapers, and gardeners. Complimented by over 300 photographs, the descriptions provide plant identification characteristics, plus details on their ecological significance, distribution, and life history.
