Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Trees and Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest, Mark Turner and Ellen Kuhlman cover 568 species of woody plants that can be found in Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and northern California. The comprehensive field guides features introductory chapters on the native landscape and plant entries that detail the family, scientific and common name, flowering seasons, and size. Each entry includes color photographs of the plant's habitat and distinguishing characteristics and a range map.

Trees and Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest is for hikers, nature lovers, plant geeks, and anyone who wants to know more about, and be able to identify, the many plants of the Pacific Northwest.

Book News Annotation:

Erring on the side of clarity, Turner and Kuhlmann include at least two photographs for each of the 568 taxa in their book, drawing on well-used references and online resources to select as many as possible of the plants found in all parts of the Northwest, from northern California to British Columbia. Entries include full-color photos, brief descriptions, and locations of plants on the onset map. There are four sections organized by leaf type: conifers, simple leaves, compound leaves, and no leaves. There is a guide to navigating the book itself, as well as sections on climate, geography, plant habitats, exploring for trees and shrubs, and plant families. Also included are a bibliography and a conversion table for metric measurements. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
