National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Trees of North America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the National Wildlife Federation® comes the most up-to-date, all-photographic field guide to North American trees.

 The Jeffrey Pine, Coconut Palm, Staghorn Sumac, and Western Hemlock: this single, portable volume features these, plus more than 700 other tree species and varieties, with special emphasis on their leaves, bark, fruits, and flowers. More than 2,000 stunning images show these trees in their natural habitats. Other features include: a unique identification tip for each tree; range maps showing distribution in North America; How to Identify a Tree section; a detailed glossary of tree parts and leaf, fruit, flower, and bark types; essays on ecology, conservation, and North Americas important forest types; plus a complex species and quick-flip indexes. The guides unique waterproof cover makes it especially valuable for use in the field.

Book News Annotation:

Thorough background essays on ecology, conservation, North America's forest types, and the essentials of tree identification, and some 2,000 small color photographs (not beautifully printed, but functional) support the identification information supplied for 700 species. Each is fully described in terms of leaves, flowers, fruits, and range as well as interesting identification tips. Keys and page headings guide readers based on tree characteristics, and the complete and quick-flip indexes also offer access. Measuring 4.75x7.75", this guide would fit handily in the car's glovebox. It'll withstand heavy use, having been printed on heavy stock (with a waterproof cover); but at two pounds, it's not particularly designed for a pocket or backpack.
