About this book

North American Wildland Plants contains descriptions of the salient characteristics of the most important wildland plants of North America. This comprehensive reference assists individuals with limited botanical knowledge as well as natural resource professionals in identifying wildland plants. The two hundred species of wildland plants in North American Wildland Plants were selected because of their abundance, desirability, or poisonous properties.

Each illustration has been enhanced with labels pointing to key characteristics to facilitate the identification of unknown plants. Each plant description includes plant characteristics, an illustration of the plant with enlarged parts, and a general distribution map for North America. Each species description includes nomenclature; life span; origin; season of growth; inflorescence, flower or spikelet, or other reproductive parts; vegetative parts; and growth characteristics. Brief notes are included on habitat; livestock losses; and historic, food, and medicinal uses. This third edition contains additional refinements in the nomenclature, distribution, illustrations, and descriptions of plants.

"Will prove useful to both individuals with limited botanical knowledge as well as natural resource professionals in identifying wildland plants."
Natural Resources Journal

"This standard in the field [...] just keeps getting better."
Choice

"An excellent field guide for amateurs and professionals who want to identify the common species in non-forested regions of North America [...] The species accounts include excellent, detailed line drawings, range maps, taxonomy, reproductive and vegetative characteristics, forage value, and habitat."
