The Northern Forest Region lies between the oak forests of the eastern United States and the boreal forests of eastern Canada. It is, collectively, one of the largest and most continuous temperate forests left in the world and, like much of the biosphere, it is at risk. Grasses of the Northern Forest is an essential companion for those interested in stewardship and conservation of the region.
With multi-image composite photos that allow for unparalleled depth and clarity, this unique guide illustrates the myriad varied and beautiful – and often overlooked – grasses of the Northern Forest.
