Item description for Seed Identification Manual by Alexander Martin...
This book was first published by the University of California Press in 1961 and is an attempt to provide an answer to the long-standing need for reference work dealing exclusively with seed identification. The immediate aim of the manual is to help agriculturalists, foresters, wildlife biologists, and others interested in land-use programs to identify the seeds in their particular fields of interest. The authors have, in the main, restricted the content of the description to those characteristics useful for identification. The descriptions are, to the extent possible, nontechnical and therefore useful to a broader range of interests and skills.

Reviews - What do customers think about Seed Identification Manual?
Not as good as the first edition Jan 10, 2007
The first edition of Martin and Barkley(1961)was a tremendously useful volume and this newer edition is simply a reprint. The main problem with it (and reason for only four stars) is the photo quality is very poor compared to the original. I've made photocopies of the original that look better than those in the current edition. I was dissapointed by that, however, the book stands alone as there are really no other references like it. If you can obtain the earlier edition at a reasonable price I'd recomend that you get it, but if you can't this adequate.
Seed Identification Manual Aug 2, 2005
An old but valuable reference on the identification of native plant seeds in the U.S. I know of only one other seed reference available for U.S.plants.
