Synopsis

Flowering Plants Smartweeds to Hazelnuts by Robert H. Mohlenbrock, Paul M. Thomson

This updated edition includes new discoveries. Since the publication of the first edition of Smart-Weeds to Hazelnuts in 1987, thirteen additional species and one hybrid have been discovered in Illinois. In addition, numerous nomenclatural changes have occurred for plants already known. This second edition updates the status of the Polygonaceae, Hamamelidaceae, Platanaceae, Fagaceae, Betulaceae, and Corylaceae in Illinois. Each of the newly discovered species has been added and is fully illustrated. Updated nomenclature as well as Illinois distributional data are included for each species. In addition to the fourteen new plant illustrations, the appendix contains new information on the descriptions and the geographical locations of plants in the first edition, and revised identification keys. Robert H. Mohlenbrock and Paul M. Thomson Jr. have included a complete description, illustrations showing diagnostic features, distribution maps, and ecological notes for each plant included in this volume. This new edition will be invaluable to scholars of botany as well as laypersons interested in observing plants in their natural habitat.

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
