Reviews

It deserves a good look from individuals interested in natural history, plant communities and diversity, and conservation.--Plant Science Bulletin


Whether you are a beginning naturalist or an expert botanist, this guidebook is a useful companion on field excursions and wildflower walks, as well as a valuable reference." --McCormick Messenger


I have never met [Spira], but I feel indebted to him for the time and thought that went into the compilation of this wonderful new source guide. I never thought I'd see anything this good on this topic for this region in my lifetime.--Asheville Citizen Times


Twenty-one major plant communities are described in detail, and the refreshing and easy-to-use format allows readers to explore each of the 340 featured plants in terms of their natural history, ecology, habitat, range, and uses--where applicable. Highly recommended.--Virginia Wildlife


One of the finest contributions to regional plant studies in recent years.--Asheville Citizen Times


This book, with its color coded sections, is easy to use. . . . Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, two-year technical program students, and general readers.--Choice


His book differs from others because it is organized by plant communities. . . . Spira makes it easier to understand the relationship between plant species and their particular physical environment. . . . This book certainly piqued my curiosity and has found a home on my book shelf.--And Sow Forth
