The mountainous Blue Ridge, perhaps the most botanically diverse region in the eastern United States, extends for more than five hundred miles, the bulk of the area falling within eighty-five counties of five states: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia.

  • I'm in the Appalachian Mountains, up around northwest North Carolina. Thus far I've yet to find ANY endemic species not in this book. Provided you understand phylogenetic trees (it's a system for figuring out what you're looking at) and have a decent reference for scientist speak you've got the definitive guide.

    This is not, however, a field guide. This is a very detailed scientific guide, there are several good field guides out there. If you are unfamiliar with scientific terminology regarding botany look into getting a book on plant taxonomy to go with it, the author Zack E. Murrell has one named 'Vascular Plant Taxonomy'.

  • Very good key, seems to be top quality.

  • I used this key in college for two botany classes (a plant diversity class and a plant anatomy and physiology class). It is an excellent tool for identifying plants, but, as the other two reviews noted, it is probably not something you're going to use while walking through the woods as a casual plant-lover. There are no illustrations, and most of the keys require a good dissecting microscope or at least a hand lense to really get a good look at the anatomy of the plant. I would also recommend purchasing a good dictionary of plant terminology to use in conjunction with this. However, if you're looking for an excellent book of dichotomous keys for plants over much of the southeastern U.S., I don't know that there is a better one out there.

  • I was required to purchase a copy of this book when I attended a plant identification class. In the classroom, using a microscope, this book was a great asset. It is very through. It is not for the casual wild flower enthusiast who is just going for a walk in the park.
