About this book

Mistletoes of the Continental United States and Canada is a field guide to the identification of the native mistletoes of the continental United States and Canada and including one introduced mistletoe now found in California. It includes information on the biology and ecology of these mistletoes, how mistletoes are identified (their morphology, physiology, and host associations), the geographic distribution of mistletoes, and comments on how to distinguish morphologically similar mistletoes from one another. Although it does not include citations within the text, it does include lists of "selected references" that contain important additional material about mistletoes that readers can use to expand their knowledge of mistletoes. It also includes sections on the relationships of mistletoes with other organisms, such as birds, mammals, insects, and fungi. It includes a set of sidebars highlighting interesting aspects of mistletoe biology, ecology, or their cultural significance. Although the book does not include specific information on the management of mistletoes, there is a section discussing why mistletoes are often managed by human societies.
