The color photographs in this compact field guide are so attractive that it’s difficult to believe the 50 trees, shrubs, grasses, and vines the authors describe are considered pests. The entry for each plant includes its common and scientific names, history, regional distribution, potential uses, and effects on the ecosystem, as well as a description of its appearance in each season. The authors also include a handy glossary of terms for the amateur botanist and a bibliography for readers seeking more detail.
