Author(s): IMES RICK
Subtitled "An essential field guide to studying, classifying, and collecting plants," this new addition to Fireside's "Practical" series is not a field guide in the usual sense, being too large (7 x 9) and too unwieldy and lacking the detail and completeness of the classic guide, e.g., the Petersen Field Guide series. Rather, it is more of an introduction to habitats, such as "Grasslands," and selected common plants found there, such as grasses, trees and shrubs, and wildflowers, listed in tabular form by English name. Imes has written a concise, well-ordered, and lavishly illustrated book suitable for public library science collections. Very good copy.
