Field Guide to Manzanitas: California, North America, and Mexico by Michael Edward Kauffmann, 2015

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2015-08-01

Field guide to manzanitas book jacket"Field Guide to Manzanitas" is a nearly comprehensive review of the genus Arctostaphylos, covering 104 of the 105 taxa in the world. Why is one missing? The excellent introduction to this book will answer that question and explore the origins and diversification that has led to one species (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) being found throughout the northern hemisphere, while 60% of the remaining taxa are considered local endemics within the California Floristic Province. This book is a must for botanizing in California and helpful in making horticultural selections in the Pacific Northwest.

Published in the August 2015 Leaflet for Scholars.
