Trees of North America: Guide to Field Identification
Field identification guides are everywhere, but this series was just so handy we had to add them! This book is loosely organized by related species in taxonomic sequence. Special exceptions, however, are made for similar-looking beings, making it even handier for quick-reference. The left side of each spread details a few notes about each species and a small range map showing where each species appears. The right side features beautiful stylized yet realistic renditions of each which accentuate the minute differences in related species. Finally, species are specifically indexed by both Latin and common names.
Smell the bark of the aromatic Sassafras. Wonder at the Lodgepole Pine, whose heat-activated cones reseed forests destroyed by fire. Search for the Sugar Maple, whose foliage blazes red and yellow in autumn. North America's trees rank among nature's most awesome creations. This premier field guide features all characteristics-tree shape, bark, leaf, flower, fruit and twig-for quick identification, making it a superior choice for trail walks, creating displays, and scientific or commercial needs.
