Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers--W: Western Region - Revised Edition?

a decent field guide for western wildflowers  Jan 2, 2008

As with all the Audubon Field Guides, so too with this one. The color plates are the best in the "field" of all the field guides; these photos are indispensible for any one who needs to identify any of the more than 650 species of western wildflowers.

The durable leatherette cover, as well as the heavy duty (turtleback) book binding, make this a book that can easily withstand much wear and tear.

The descriptive information is good; where the text starts to show deficiencies is in the Range, Habitat, and Comments sections of each species. The information tends to be vague and merely glosses over critical facts that should be included. I can only assume that it's the usual story of the editors not having the space to include more relevant information.

The index is cross referenced to the color plates; this is a big plus when out in the field attempting to do identifications. As far as a good tool to increase one's knowledge of the natural world, this field guide is helpful and deserves a place in any naturalist's library.

National Audubon Society Guide to North American Wildflowers: Western Region - Revised Edition  Aug 8, 2007
This book is excellent. It's photos of flowers and leaves are close up and clear. The introduction is filled with information on flower and leaf parts with diagrams. The information, description, and where each flower can be found is very detailed.
Great for general curiosity  Jul 5, 2007
This book is great for those who like to know what they're looking at when they're out on a hike away from home. Since it covers the entire western U.S., it won't have every single flower you come across, but it can often help you get at least to the right family. I have a book that covers every single plant that I could come across right around where I live, but when I go more than a couple hours from home, this is a fun book to have. Great pictures, and great info on each plant in the back.
National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers: Western Region - Revised Edition (National Audubon Society F  Jun 27, 2007
As in all the National Audubon Society Field Guides the book is great. National Audubon Society Field Guides are my favorite of all the guide books. The color photos are clear and close up for easy identification of the plant. Descriptions are in-depth for information and assistance in identification. I highly recommend this book.
Awesome!!  Jan 4, 2007
The illustrations are fabulous. I have seen many wildflower books where all the pictures are in black and white. This book has actual photos of the flowers as well as detailed descriptions to help you learn. I recommend this book!
