A Field Guide to Common Plants
by Hugh Margerum & David Powdrell
Intended to be taken on the trail, this field guide features photographs and descriptions of 54 plants most likely to be encountered on any venture into the coastal ranges of the Los Padres National Forest. The photographs are arranged by flower color, with clear, short descriptions of each plant in non-technical langauge to aid in easy indentification. An ideal companion for students, hikers, or the amateur naturalist of any age; this book will further an appreciation for the year-round natural beauty we are fortunate to have in our own backyard.
