Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in this guide. I study ferns, so I have high expectations for field guides, and this met none of them. I find it very unlikely that it would be at all useful for someone who wasn't already familiar with the ferns of this area. The main problem is the level of illustration. There is only one - ONE! - photo accompanying each species, and they are smallish, about 3" tall by 2" wide. Below the single photo is a little paragraph about the species, and then on every single page, at least a third and up to a half of the page below the text is blank, white space. I was shocked by this! The decision to use the space this way would have been appropriate maybe for a coffee-table book, but this is a field guide! The point should be to get as much information as possible into a portable package so that people might actually be able to use the book to identify plants in the field. There's no way someone unfamiliar with ferns could competently identify them from these tiny, single pictures. They are all taken from far away, and I'll be the first to admit that many ferns look alike from 10 feet away. There should have been close ups of the individual fronds (leaves), and especially of the sori (reproductive structures on the undersides, usually, of the leaves). Sori are absolutely critical structures when it comes to identifying ferns, and it is appalling that the author did not include photos, or drawings at the very least, for every single species.

Further complaints: 1) There is a paltry glossary with drawings to illustrate some of the terms, like sori.
