Need help identifying plants in the wild? This book has a good reputation for being handy in the field. It's compact enough to be stored with ease in a day pack or backpack and the information it offers is compact, too.
From Toxicodendron diversilobum (poison oak) to Zannichellia palustris (horned pondweed), this book will help every outdoor enthusiast identify, and possibly avoid certain plants in the Sierra. Covers wildflowers, ferns, shrubs, and trees. This edition strictly follows the nomenclature presented in The Jepson Manual as the basis for scientific names.
