About this book

With its high plains, rolling hills, and river valleys, Kansas is home to a surprisingly diverse flora, and among these riches are the 166 species of trees, shrubs, and woody vines identified, described, and pictured in this handy guide. Expanding and updating H.A. Stephens's 1969 classic, Trees, Shrubs, and Woody Vines in Kansas offers full descriptions of woody plant species found in the wild in Kansas, 138 of them native. County-level distribution maps show where species have been documented, and nearly 1,000 colour photographs highlight morphological features – habit, bark, leaves, flowers, and fruit.

Updated scientific nomenclature reflects our current understanding of the taxonomy of woody species, as well as the most recent findings in studies of DNA, macro- and micromorphology, cytology, ecology, and phenology. With keys for identification, additional notes about nearly 100 other native and non-native woody plants found in the state, and a comprehensive glossary defining all technical botanical terms, this user-friendly handbook should be the go-to guide for plant enthusiasts and professionals alike.
