    thesmellofbooks: These two books are excellent complementary references for identifying and understanding the trees of the southern Pacific coast of Canada and the northern Pacific coast of the U.S.A.. Highly recommended.

This book is good enough to deserve a place in my backpack, even after many years of use. The descriptions are not only helpful, they are entertaining. Traditional plant uses and historical information is included for every plant. This is the book for identifying plant life you will see along any Pacific Northwest trail or boating experience. The photographs help beginning botanists find the correct plant quickly, and the text has enouh little-known tidbits to keep more experienced plant people reading. Excellent!

If one can own but one native plant book for the Pacific Northwest, this is the one which provides the best balance of being an introduction, and to covering the widest variety of common native plants. The coverage of trees, liverworts, mosses, ferns, lichens and flowering plants are all first rate. None of these areas of treatment have been added as an afterthought. For example, the narrative accompanying moss illustrations provide information on appearance, habitat, description of the sporophyte, and ways to separate this species from others. This latter aspect is not always covered in many professional field guides where the authors often assume that their particular keys have sufficiently separated the species from all others.

Coverage of grasses is good, but I found the keys a little hard to use, and the use of tribes doesn't always translate into the manner and approach of keys in other field books.

The index is quite consistent in its manner of referencing plants and their page location. Each species is referenced by one Latin name and minimally one common name. For example, in the index for the species "Douglas Maple", there are entries under "Acer glabrum", "Maple, Douglas", and "Maple, Rocky Mountain"; but not under "Rocky Mountain maple" or "Douglas maple". Another example, an entry would be found under "monkeyflower, pink" but not under "pink monkeyflower" ( )

An excellent guidebook - though with one curious omission. Poison oak is not given its own entry, but merely referenced in the description of hairy manzanita. It doesn't even appear in the index under its common name (appearing only as one of its several scientific names, _Toxicodendron diversilobum_. ( )

Endlessly useful. Good photos, system, illustrations, and notes. ( )
