Editorial Reviews

Review

“This accurate, usable guide to our flora will undoubtedly find its way into the backpacks of many a naturalist.”—Thomas A. Meyer, conservation biologist, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources


“No other manual combines the accessible approach with the species coverage of this book. Accurate and highly usable, it will likely become the wildflower field guide of choice for our region.”—Andrew L. Hipp, the Morton Arboretum, author of Sedges of Wisconsin

Good addition when used with Peterson's Wildflower guide.

If you start out by identifying the number of petals, it will usually narrow down the search.
Kathleen Benson
This book came highly recommended by several plant ecologists.

Now in an updated second edition, Wildflowers of Wisconsin and the Great Lakes Region is a full-color field guide packed with wildflower listings cover to cover. Each listing features a color photograph of the wildflower, and a brief information block concerning its size, description, fruit, status, a county graph of its geographic distribution in Wisconsin, and more. More than 1,100 species from 459 genera in 100 families of wildflower are covered in this excellent, user-friendly resource catalog.

Format: Paperback
A boon to all field botanists, both amateur and professional, this guide is essential when botanizing in the Upper Midwest. In Wisconsin, the range maps are so helpful in guiding one to the correct identification. And with so many species covered, it's hard to find something not covered by this book.

For Beginners: this book takes you through the basis of how to start identifying flowers, and provides detailed pictures of each flower. It also provides descriptions for different life stages.

For the more Advanced: It has an extremely helpful index and groups similar flowers together. So I find that by searching for a flower I know is similar I can quickly find the one I'm looking for.

Great reference book for wildflowers in the Great Lakes region, not just Wisconsin. Good color photographs of the flowers up close. Good addition when used with Peterson's Wildflower guide. They both cover a large amount of the wildflowers in this region.

Format: Paperback
I am going to get another book to help me as a rank amateur. This book is good if you know plants, but I haven't figured out how to count the "parts" of a flower yet after cruising the pages for an hour, and number of parts is critical to using the ID method. Being complete is its best attribute. Pictures are small. Guess I need the Flowers for Dummies version. Big pictures with ID by color would be a better way for me to get started.

What a great reference book! Any midwest "Plant Nut" should get this book. It's very informative for the novice also. Keep it on your camping, hiking, outdoors supplies list!

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found this book easy to use. If you start out by identifying the number of petals, it will usually narrow down the search. Found it to be very helpful in identifying wildflowers in northern Wisconsin
