Product Description Over 675 species of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, grasses, ferns, mosses and lichens commonly found in the region from the crest of the Rockies to the Coast Mountains, including the interior of Washington and Idaho. Detailed species descriptions are combined with concise drawings and color photographs to make plant identification easy. Review This publication is far more than a field guide. It is an enjoyable read in front of the fire when the region is snowbound. It is a succinct synthesis and essential reference for ethnobotanists, ecologists, and taxonomists. It is a source of fascinating botanical history of plants, plant-hunters, and plant names. It is simply a well researched and well written book. --Discovery Magazine, Vancouver, BC About the Author RAY COUPE is a forest ecologist who works in the Cariboo Forest Region for the BC Ministry of Forests.
