Plant Life of a Desert Archipelago

Flora of the Sonoran Islands in the Gulf of California

Richard Felger & Benjamin Wilder

This book is the first in-depth coverage of the plants on islands in the Gulf of California found in between the coasts of Baja, California and Sonora. Almost 400 plant species exist here, with each island manifesting a unique composition of vegetation and flora. The researchers surveyed, collected, and studied thousands of plants---seen here in meticulous illustrations and stunning color photographs---providing the most precise species accounts of the islands ever made. The major part of this book is Part III, the Species Account organized as pteridophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms. The color plates show beautiful flowers in all colors. This book is a fundamental resource for the plants of the Gulf Islands. The flora descriptions area extraordinarily detailed and painstakingly crafted for field biologists, conservationists, students, and others who are interested in learning about the natural wealth of the Gulf of California, desert regions, or islands in general are sure to be captivated by this rich and fascinating volume. Well written in a lucid format—it is obvious that the author is an expert in his field. I would recommend this as essential reading for anyone dealing with xeric plants. 355 b/w photos, 45 color photos, 624 pages, 9” x 11”, Weighs 3.7 pounds --- 1-1/2” thick. Hardbound w/color dustjacket. Normally retails for $65.95---OUR PRICE:………….$59.95
