BAJA CALIFORNIA PLANT FIELD GUIDE 3RD EDITION
LATEST EDITION OF THE DEFINTIVE BAJA PLANT FIELD GUIDE
by Jon Rebman & Norm Roberts
This new edition is 30% larger and is completely revised with much more information and plants featured. This is a definitive guide to the fantastic variety and uniqueness found in Baja California’s plant life. Plants are described and shown in color. The effect of various environmental factors is also discussed. The Baja California Plant Field Guide is a manual to native and naturalized plants of the Baja California peninsula, Mexico. It is a useful guide for the entire Sonoran Desert and for Southern California, as over 50% of the species covered also occur in these regions. Over 715 different plants in 111 plant families are identified (most in both English and Spanish), with both scientific and common names and detailed descriptions. Many species are illustrated with color photographs. Descriptions entail plant habit and height; stem, leaf, flower, and fruit morphology; range; elevation; pollination biology; ethno botanical uses; and discriminating comparisons with close relatives. This book is intended for everyone from the interested novice to the professional botanist.
