About this book

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. Woody Plants of the Northern Forest: A Photographic Guide is an essential companion for those interested in stewardship and conservation of the region.

Through multi-image composite photos that allow for unparalleled depth and clarity, this unique guide illustrates the majority of the 265 species of woody plants present in the forest and its associated communities. With a visual glossary, nineteen quick guides, and five systematic sections, this book is intended as a quick reference for the rapid identification of twigs and leaves. It is an invaluable tool for foresters and an excellent teaching guide for all ages.

"Jerry Jenkins brings to this project a great depth of knowledge about botany and ecology, years of teaching experience and field work, a facility with photography and computer graphics, and an infectious love of every aspect of the Northern Forest Region, most especially its plants. He brings all of this and more to bear in this excellent guide."
– Chris Runcie, PhD, Naturalist and Educator, Four Winds Nature Institute

"Jerry Jenkins has a vision about how to present the northern forest that no one else has or will develop for a long time to come. From my perspective as someone who has used and enjoyed guides to all aspects of natural history throughout my life, including in my efforts to identify trees and other plant taxa, I know that I have never had available published material of this high quality."
– Clifford Kraft, Professor of Natural Resources, Cornell University
