San Diego County Native Plants by James Lightner

The third edition of San Diego County Native Plants includes information on more than 1,300 native and naturalized plants of San Diego County and shows nearly 3,000 color photographs, all in a compact volume ideal for field use. Incorporating the latest scientific names from the 2011 edition of The Jepson Manual, the new book also highlights nearly 150 sensitive and rare plants listed by governmental agencies in the San Diego region's Habitat Conservation Plans. An extensive introductory section provides background on topics such as vegetation, public lands, biological mitigation, plant taxonomy, weeds, wildfire, use of plants by wildlife and by indigenous peoples, landscaping with native plants, and more. Designed to be useful to a broad public from professional biologists and university students to hikers, naturalists, landowners, and residential gardeners. Extensively expanded, updated and corrected, this 432-page third edition greatly improves upon the popular second edition published in 2006.

This book is a great " bible" for native plant gardeners in the San Diego area. I bought it to help me plan for a native habitat garden at my school.

This profusely illustrated (six color photos per page)paperback, sized to fit in a hiker's backpack is a godsend for helping outdoor enthusiasts to distinguish native plants from non-natives and to spot invasive exotics. Well-organized and well-researched, this is a great book both for environmental hobbyists and professionals. Highly recommended.
