This comprehensive guide contains more than 530 color photographs that illustrate the plants and their flowers, leaves, and fruits; the descriptive text combines scientific, ethnobotanical, and cross-cultural information. What's more, the index to medical topics is helpful for quickly locating information on specific ailments, while symbols next to the plant descriptions provide quick visual warnings for poisonous and allergenic plants. Organized by flower color for fast identification, this guide is an essential aid to appreciating native plants and the wild areas they inhabit.
