National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers: Western Region (Audubon Society Field Guide)by National Audubon Society
Synopses & Reviews
This fully revised edition brings a new level of beauty, accuracy, and usefulness to the field guide that wildflower enthusiasts have relied upon for more than 20 years.
More than 940 all-new, full-color images show the wildflowers of western North America close-up and in their natural habitats. The guide has been completely revised to make identification in the field easier than ever. Images are grouped by flower color and shape and keyed to clear, concise descriptions that reflect current taxonomy.
Book News Annotation:
This revision of the 1979 publication contains all new photography—941 color photos showing flowers close-up and in their natural surroundings, organized by flower color and shape, with a visual key to aid identification. Six hundred and fifty-four species covered in detail and notes on hundreds more are packed into a small, plastic covered vade mecum (4x7.5<">).
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Nothing is as colorful as a field of wildflowers in full-bloom so what could be more appropriate than a magnificent field guide with beautiful full-color photographs? More than 1,000 species are covered in full detail, with notes on more than 400 others. The 700 identification photographs show wildflowers-including grasses and sedges, and many flowering vines and shrubs-in their natural habitats.
Note: the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all the states to the west of it, while the Eastern Edition generally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains.
