Weeds of North America by Richard Dickinson, 2014

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2015-05-01

weeds of north america book jacket"Weeds of North America" is an excellent new guide to more than 600 invasive plants throughout the United States and Canada. Designed in field guide style, the photographs are a particularly strong feature of this book, with 3-5 for each plant, including leaves, flowers, and seeds. The text includes a description of the life cycle, jurisdictions that have identified the plant as noxious, and details on the reasons for concern, including displacement of native plant habitat, toxicity to livestock, and/or status as an alternative host of a serious plant disease.

Published in the May 2015 Leaflet for Scholars Volume 2, Issue 5.
