Illustrated Guide to Trees and Shrubs: A Handbook of the Woody Plants of the Northeastern United States and Adjacent Regions
Geared to the needs of the interested amateur and student naturalist, this book combines the handiness of a field guide with complete coverage of the area (Northeastern United States and adjacent regions). Three hundred pen-and-ink drawings by noted botanical artist Maud H. Purdy facilitate exact identification based on leaves, buds, branches, seeds and stems.
