This book shows the best detail of Missouri wildflowers in bloom. It really gets "up close and personal" of each wild thing growing in the natural setting. A MUST for the beginer right up to the professor!!

Format: Paperback
On a recent walk, through field and wood, here is Southern Missouri, I was able to identify only six of the 34 flowers I encountered. Either the plant simply was not in the book, or the picture quality was of poor detail. Actually, I cannot completely fault the author for this, but rather the Missouri Conservation Commission, who has been doing things sort of half way for years now. Pity. In the introduction of the book, which should be read carefully before purchase, someone has stated, if reference to the large number of flowering plants in Missouri, that "Even this figure should not scare the amateur because many groups (genera, have so many species that only an expert could possibly take an interest in identifying them....."
Now that is academic arrogance at it's best! Perhaps it would be better to retitle this books as "A Very Fragmented Overview of Missouri Wildflowers."
