California Natural History Guides #65: Introduction to Trees of the San Francisco Bay Region Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The mild Mediterranean climate of the San Francisco Bay Region nurtures an enormous variety of trees: majestic oaks and coast redwoods, lovely flowering dogwood and western redbud, graceful bigleaf maple, and many others. This guidebook, with its easy-to-use keys, informative species accounts, and copious illustrations, is the perfect guide to California's native and naturalized trees for those who want a handy, authoritative manual to carry into the field.

o Species descriptions give fascinating and little-known facts about each tree and suggest locales to visit for viewing them

o 250 color photographs illustrate traits essential for identification and show surrounding habitats for many species

o Provides detailed tips on learning to use keys and other identification aids

o Covers all nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Region and includes trees found in adjacent Monterey and Mendocino counties

Synopsis:

This is an introduction to the native and naturalized trees of the Bay Area, which for this book extends roughly from Mendocino to Monterey and inland to Mt. Diablo.
