Overview

This handbook, specifically designed as a reference for the general reader, is illustrated with 952 photographs and 114 drawings and maps arranged for easy, on-the-spot identification. The photographs, remarkable for their quality and detail, were taken by the author from living materials. They illustrate leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, bark and winter buds so that the plants may be identified easily at any time of year.

Descriptions of the 114 species covered in detail list common and scientific names and include pertinent general commentary with useful background facts. The distribution of each species is indicated by a diagrammatic map of Kansas showing areas of location. The guide to the identification of plants, keys to species, glossary, and other important features will successfully introduce the subject to anyone interested in the woody plants of Kansas and surrounding areas.
