"Belongs on every public and academic library shelf in the Northeast, and will be a valuable reference for years to come."―American Reference Books Annual
"Comprehensive and fascinating―even for readers far outside this manual's targeted region. Many plants discussed can be found throughout North America, and the flora's notes on food value for humans and wildlife and on medicinal and poisonous properties plus an index that includes proper plant names extend the readership beyond a professional audience."―American Scientist
"Flora of the Northeast, in all an exceptionally well done flora, is a good example of a scholarly botanical product that will be both enjoyed and used by a wide audience, including not only motivated amateurs, but also hikers, wildflower enthusiasts, and gardeners."―Taxon
"A useful feature in this edition is a random access identification key in CD-ROM format that includes color photographs of all genera in the text. This easy-to-use key likely will be a good resource for anyone preferring to identify pants using electronic aids."―Choice
"This flora will be a valuable addition to the shelf of any New England botanist―for use both in the field and as a reference work."―Plant Science Bulletin
