Wildflowers and Ferns of Indiana Forests A Field Guide

by Marion T. Jackson

Part of the Indiana Natural Science Series

Wildflowers and Ferns of Indiana Forests A Field Guide Synopsis

This beautifully illustrated guide identifies nearly 300 common plants in Indiana's most prominent ecosystem-the Eastern Deciduous Forest. For ease of identification, the plants are arranged by flower color or growth form, providing a convenient way to distinguish a great majority of plants in any given woodland. Generous treatment is given to all major vascular plant groups of the forest, such as wildflowers, ferns, shrubs, trees, grasses, and sedges. Michael A. Homoya not only helps with identification, but also offers information on a plant's habitat, flowering period, familial relationships, biology, and connections to Indiana. For the garden enthusiast and habitat restorer, there is a section on landscaping and natural community restoration using native forest plants. A portion of the proceeds from each sale of this book go to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for land protection and stewardship.

Wildflowers and Ferns of Indiana Forests A Field Guide Press Reviews

[This] easy-to-use guide is perfect for the novice nature explorer or the garden enthusiast. There's even a section on landscaping and natural habitat restoration using native forest plants. * Northern Indiana Lakes * Kudos to Mike Homoya for giving us another volume that demands a space on the bookshelf of every native plant enthusiast. * INPAWS * [A] helpful, compact fieldguide. . . . In all, it's a useful book; and its size will allow hikers to carry it in a day pack. It's not exhaustive but certainly comprehensive enough for most weekend hikers and plant lovers. * *
