Peterson Field Guides #2: A Field Guide to Pacific States Wildflowers: Washington, Oregon, California and Adjacent Areas
Peterson Field Guides #2: A Field Guide to Pacific States Wildflowers: Washington, Oregon, California and Adjacent Areas

Jacque, June 18, 2009

Great book. Line drawings are better than photos for identifying plants.

Plant names are based on a system of grouping plants by the similarities in their sexual parts. Good line drawings will clearly show the pertinent structures, no matter the size of the flowers, something that many photos, however beautiful, simply can't do.

If you want to learn something about plants, you won't go wrong if you buy this book and a hand lens.
