Limited space means not all of the leaves are shown in a close up, the author sometimes showing different aspects such as a longer view of the large bushy plants to the bulbs so sometimes it is difficult or next to impossible to see a clear shot of what most would use to identify the plant-its leaf structure.
For those with a working knowledge i.e. grew up around these plants with a basic recognition would have no problem, for those new it will just take a little more time and effort. Nice info on its uses as food and or medicines, also precautions.
Excellent for most, experts would not likely ever use this except as a teaching aid (which it is in my case).
I'd recommend this book for both the serious desert trekker and the casual hiker.
