Review:

"This is probably the best reference that I have encountered to help students learn morphology. The information is streamlined, easy to read and the photographs help students visualize the plant when live specimens are unavailable. I particularly like that there is a chapter that describes how to interpret the data that is used to describe each plant."

"I am glad that there is an accessible resource with plant identification information available to high school students."
