Field Guides

Post by Gurthy on Sun Apr 01, 2012 11:43 pm

It's that time of year when everything is growing again so let's talk field guides.

I have a few but greatly prefer regional field guides for their ease of use and smaller size. Here are three that I really like and carry most often:

Those look good. I need to get some. Does the berry and fruit one inclued poisonous plants as well? How are the pictures in them? I like color pictures but seem to only find books with sketches in them.

The pics are full color and excellent. The book is divided by fruit color and the listings are "delicious", "edible", "not edible" and "toxic". Good descriptions with key features in highlighted text, lots of good info on each plant.

I used it on Saturday to ID partridge berry... here is that sample page:
