A Naturalist’s Guide to Field Plants
An Ecology for Eastern North America

Donald D. Cox
Illustrations by Shirley A. Peron

Paper $19.95    |    0-8156-0780-6    |    2004

""Plants offer a convenient Medium to study all kinds of life processes, from sexual reproduction to ecological adaptation. Amateur naturalists in the eastern US will appreciate this concise treatment of such topics, along with tips on plant collecting and other field investigations suitable for variety of ages. The many black-and-white drawings are especially helpful when trying to identify the organisms in question. With chapter 5, ‘Through the Year,’ Cox shows great insight into his readers. Here he gives concise descriptions and interesting information such as the plants’ usefulness to humans and historical distribution data on selected species, arranged chronologically as the plants bloom month by month. . . . Recommended." —Choice
