Field Manual of Michigan Florais the most up-to-date guide available for all seed plants native or introduced but growing wild in Michigan. It is based on, but signifigantly expanded and updated from, the three-volume Michigan Florapublished four decades ago. Completely updated species maps complement detailed keys based on the most reliable and easily observed plant characteristics, helping readers to quickly determine the family, genus, and species of unknown plants discovered in the field. Recent advances in our understanding of plant relationships as well as the vast trove of new information on the shifting distributions of Michigan species, especially rapidly spreading aliens, make this an essential tool for identifying any of the state's over 2,700 species, for understanding and stewarding our ever-changing environment, and for appreciating Michigan's natural heritage."A valuable addition to the flora of not only Michigan but also of the entire western Great Lakes region. Thoroughly updated, modernized, and comprehensive, this is a spectacularly achieved effort that will be useful to those in the fields of botany, taxonomy, and ecology." --Michael A. Vincent, Curator, W. S. Turrell Herbarium, Miami University
