The book includes over 690 color photographs of plants taken in the field, and hundreds of line drawings. It details where to go plant-hunting and at what seasons of the year. Also included are brief descriptions of types of climate, geology, soils, altitude effects, and the effects of people and animals on the vegetation of the region.
