The southern twelve counties of Illinois, a total of 4355 square miles, comprise the area covered in this book. It is an area in which both northern and southern flora specimens abound. A wide variety of plant species grow in this area, and nearly 200 new plants not formerly identified with this area have been included in the listings.
This attractively styled manual will be of interest to botanists in several Mid-western states, since the flora of southern Illinois includes a considerable number of different floristic elements which grow in a rather wide range of habitats. The handsome printing and well-selected photographs should add considerably to the appeal of the book for students... The authors have certainly succeeded in their goal of publishing a book which will interest amateur naturalists as well as applied biologists. It is hoped that other regions in the Midwest may some-day be supplied with floristic treatments as well done as this one."--"The American Midland Naturalist"
