about this item

Of the mountains of southern California, the San Bernardino Mountain Range is the most diverse, with over 1,600 species of native plants. This book presents 350 to 400 plant species of the San Bernardino Mountains, including all of the dominant species and plants that casual observers are likely to notice. Much more information is given about how to distinguish less common species from the more widespread ones. Most of the common and dominant species of the San Bernardino Range also occur in the San Gabriel and San Jacinto Ranges, so there is ample coverage of those ranges and the book will prove useful in those areas as well. This book should please the plant enthusiast and botanist alike, for it also contains detailed accounts of the many unique species endemic to the Big Bear region, and for which the region is biologically famous and named as a ‘biodiversity hotspot’.
