9780878423149: Mountain Plants of the Pacific Northwest: A Field Guide to Washington, Western British Columbia, and Southeastern Alaska

The Pacific Northwest's mountain present a study in climatic extremes. The region's flora reflects the contrasts, with rain forest blanketing the precipitation-soaked western slopes of the mountains, ruggted alpine plants hunkering low along the windswept crests, and drought-resistant alpine plants taking root on the rain-shadowed eastern slopes.
Mountain Plants of the Pacific Northwest invites wildflower enthusiasts, naturalists, and botanists to explore the diverse mountain plant life of Washington, western British Columbia, and southeastern Alaska. With superb color photographs, nontechnical descriptions, and supplemental drawings, this field guide covers more than 450 species of wildflowers, ferns, trees, and grasses.

About the Author:

Ronald J. Taylor is a retired professor of botany and plant ecology at Western Washington University.

The author of numerous scientific and popular articles and books, Taylor has written four titles for Mountain Press.

Review:
