About this book

The long-awaited second edition of Rare Vascular Plants of Alberta combines detailed botanical descriptions, plant habitats, and phenological information with hundreds of photographs, illustrations, and provincial and North American distribution maps. Featuring nearly 500 species, 150 of which are new to this edition, this accessible and richly-illustrated text is an essential field companion for professional and amateur native plant enthusiasts alike, with broad applicability in neighbouring provinces and states as well as in Alberta.

Approximately twenty-two percent of Alberta's native vascular plants are classified as rare in the province – and those who choose to study these elusive species are a little bit rare themselves. Embrace and cherish your remarkable path as you surely will the rare plants presented in this beautiful book.
