Little Big Bend: Common, Uncommon, and Rare Plants of Big Bend National Park based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is the way plant and animal reference books should be written: One plant per page, lots of info, and an excellent picture showing important distinguishing features. I am very happy with it.
This book is an outstanding and comprehensive reference on the various plants found in Big Bend National Park. Each plant is accompanied by a color photograph of its most distinguishing features, and includes closeup views of the leaves, flowers, or fruit. The natural history of each plant is also described in detail, as well as its taxonimic classification and discoverer. I found this book to be fascinating to read, as our family had just visited Big Bend, and we recognized many of the plants we had seen. It also made us eager to return in the spring and search for many that we had not found, or which were not blooming in the fall. I highly recommend this book to students, naturalists, and visitors to the park, as it is professional in scope, yet attractive and understandable to the lay person.
