About this book

California is home to more than 50 native species of pines, firs, spruces, junipers, hemlocks, and other conifers. World-renowned for cone-bearing trees such as giant sequoia, coast redwood, and bristlecone pine, California also harbors an unrivalled diversity of lesser known, but intriguing species such as Torrey Pine, Santa Lucia fir, and Brewer Spruce.
Conifers of California is the first book entirely devoted to the state's native cone-bearing trees and shrubs. Richly illustrated, it serves as both a natural history and field guide. Each species' narrative is accompanied by full page colour botanical illustrations by the late Eugene O Murman, photographs, a range map and comprehensive identification information.
`Conifers are often beautiful and fascinating, and Ron Lanner's latest book on the subject beams this message radiantly from almost every page... It is therefore most welcome to have a modern account of them that is so well illustrated and available at such a modest price. An interesting feature of this book is that it has made use of hitherto mostly unpublished watercolours by Eugene O Murman (1874-1962) that depict botanical details for nearly all of the conifer species in California.'
