About the Author:

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. These editions include updated material by Michael O'Brien, Paul Lehman, Bill Thompson III, Michael DiGiorgio, Larry Rosche, and Jeffrey A. Gordon.

Review:

Using the unique system of identification employed in the author's other tree books, 243 common or unique trees of North America are divided into six major groups according to conspicuous characteristics. Within those categories, trees that look alike are brought together and compared in text and illustration.

The color plates, beautifully painted by Olivia Petrides and Janet Wehr, emphasize details that may not be present or clearly visible in a photograph. Differences between trees that resemble each other are clearly pointed out. Information also is provided on the ecology and natural history of trees, including the ways they are used by people and wildlife. -- From the Author
