Field Guide to Sedges of the Pacific Northwest by Barbara L. Wilson, 2014

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2015-06-01

Sedges of the pacific northwest book jacket "Field Guide to Sedges of the Pacific Northwest" is regarded by reviewers across the country as one of the best field guides on any topic, and is even better in the newly released 2nd edition. Included are entries for all 169 species, subspecies, and varieties that grow wild in Oregon and Washington, with typically 4-6 photographs or diagrams of each. An extensive key helps with identification, as do detailed tips with each entry, while comments discuss habitat, ethnobotanical uses, and the significance for restoration.

Published in the June 2015 Leaflet for Scholars.
