Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An atlas and encyclopedia that emphasizes the taxonomy, ecology, and biogeography of 339 common and characteristic trees, shrubs, and cacti of the Sonoran Desert. It also includes information on ethnobotanical, commercial, and horticultural uses of the plants. Each species has its own entry, which includes a map with an elevation profile and a narrative account. The bibliography includes both the recent research literature as well as many references of historical interest and importance. Though intended primarily for scientists, a glossary makes the volume accessible to general readers. Includes 85 b&w photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

"A goldmine of information that represents more than three decades of careful compilation." —Economic Botany"Marvellous introductions to the ecology of each species. . . . A must-have for the serious naturalist and field ecologist working in the Sonoran." —Tree"A most remarkable mine of information." —Cactus and Succulent Journal"The new reference list alone is probably reason enough for any plant ecologist who has worked in the southwestern deserts to rush out and get this book." —Plant Science Bulletin"To anyone interested in Sonoran Desert flora, this book is probably the best and most current reference." —Academic Library Book Review“It’s a welcome whiff of mission in an otherwise technical manual-and the call-out to citizen scientists is more relevant now than ever.” —High Country News
