From the Inside Flap

"This exciting book belongs on every naturalist's bookshelf. The excellent color photos and clear text will endear it to the amateur while the accurate identifications will please the professional. This book is an ideal gift for anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors."—Katherine Schick, Essig Museum of Entomology, University of California, Berkeley

"This identification guide, with its summaries of the science and lore of galls and their causative organisms, engagingly draws one into another barely explored world, one presently known only to a few. With the publication of this book, many more can now appreciate these fascinating plant growths."—Raymond J. Gagné, Systematic Entomology Laboratory, USDA

"This comprehensive, descriptive, and beautifully illustrated guide to plant galls of the West will appeal to both professional and amateur."—Diane M. Erwin, Museum of Paleontology, University of California, Berkeley
