Useful throughout the Southeast north of Florida, this field guide identifies 205 species & varieties, with complete plant descriptions that highlight differences between similar taxa. It also includes range maps & botanical keys for summer & winter.From the Publisher:
The state of Georgia encompasses five distinct geographical areas, providing a great diversity of climate, topography, and soils. The seasonal climate on mountain summits in northern Georgia is comparable to that of some states in the Northeast, while that of the Coastal Islands is nearly subtropical. This diversity has fostered a similar richness in native tree species: some 205 species and varieties, nearly one-third of the total native in the entire United States.
Brown and Kirkman’s new manual is intended as a practical, concise guide for field identification. Unlike any other manual, it presents color photographs of fruits and flowers as well as leaves of most species, along with bark characteristics of significant commercial species. It also presents photographs of winter twigs, which in conjunction with the winter key that supplements the summer key makes the book valuable year-round. The descriptions of each species are detailed, including information on habitat and economic and ornamental uses. A feature of particular usefulness is “Recognition Difficulties with Other Taxa,” where characteristics of similar plants are compared and contrasted to make identification certain.
The book’s usefulness is by no means restricted to Georgia: about 90% of the native tress to be found in the states from Delaware south to Northern Florida and westward to east Texas are included. The manual will therefore be of great interest to botanists, horticulturists, and foresters throughout the Southeast.
