Many of us have stopped to pick bunches of wildflowers or have admired them as they flourished in fields, hiking trails, and roads.
Always appreciated but not always recognized, now these beauties can easily be identified with Wildflowers in the Field and Forest, the most inclusive field guide available to the wildflowers of the northeastern United States.
Designed for easy use, the book features two-page spreads with descriptive text and range maps on one side facing pages of color photos on the other.
The descriptions are concise, but thorough, and the range maps show both where the plant grows and what time of year it is likely to be in bloom.
Plants are grouped by flower color, usually the feature first noticed by the observer.
The species are subsequently grouped by petal arrangement, type of leaves, and number of flower parts as indicated in the "quick characters" box at the top of each page.
There is also a simple key in the beginning of the book that allows one to quickly narrow the search to a few pages.
