Snowy Owl Books
"A splendid introduction to one of Alaska's real treasures, its plant cover."
"The second updated edition of a definitive work on the woody plants of Alaska updates an edition that has been the standard on the topic for over three decades. Any collection specializing in Alaska botany must have this: it completely revises information and provides updates on habitat and taxonomy plus offers a centerfold of color photos in addition to the black and white drawings throughout. Descriptions of leaves, twigs, bark, wood appearance, flowers, habitat and distribution make for invaluable study and reference."
—The Midwest Book Review, California Bookwatch
"An excellent reference [that] belongs in the botanist's library or in the library of anyone interested in landscaping indigenous plants. It's also good for people who just want to tell one tree from another."
"A book of very high quality [that] should be a constant companion of both researchers and interested naturalists who enjoy the delightful offerings of western North American northlands."
Alaska Trees and Shrubs has been the definitive work on the woody plants of Alaska for more than three decades. This new, completely revised second edition provides updated information on habitat, as well as detailed descriptions of every tree or shrub species in the state. New distribution maps reflect the latest survey data, while the keys, glossary, and appendix on non-native plants make this the most useful guide to Alaska trees and shrubs ever published.
