About the Author:

Dr. Theodore F. Niehaus became interested in plants at an early age: his father, a U.S. forest ranger, taught him the names of the plants at the Sierra Nevada ranger stations where they lived. He has since studied plants throughout the Pacific states and in Alaska and Latin America and has discovered and named a number of new species. He holds a doctorate in taxonomic botany from the University of California at Berkeley and has taught at Berkeley and the University of San Francisco. Now engaged in writing and research, he is the author of "Sierra Wildflowers", "A Field Guide to Southwestern and Texas Wildflowers" (no. 32 in the Peterson Field Guide Series), and several scientific papers.

Roger Tory Peterson, one of the world"s greatest naturalists, received every major award for ornithology, natural science, and conservation, as well as numerous honorary degrees, medals, and citations, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The Peterson Identification System has been called the greatest invention since binoculars, and the Peterson Field Guides® are credited with helping to set the stage for the environmental movement.

Charles L. Ripper, one of the world's leading wildlife and nature artists, has illustrated dozens of books and magazine articles and has also painted stamps for the National Wildlife Federation and the U.S. Postal Service. His work has been published in many forms and is in many private collections.
