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 this book were selected because of their abundance, desirability, or poisonous properties. Each illustration has been enhanced to maximize use of the book as a field guide. Each plant description includes identifying 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 second edition includes updated information about closely related or easily misidentified species, new and revised illustrations, and revised distribution maps.
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. - Wildlife Activist
