This beautifully illustrated field guide features striking full-color photos of trees, including close-up details. The bulk of the book provides information on identifying nearly 500 species from around the world, divided into spore trees, seed trees, cycads, ginkgos, conifers, and flowering trees, with brief notes on height, type, where each grows, bark, leaf, flower, and fruit. There are also chapters on "What is a Tree?" discussing tree classification, evolution, structure, reproduction, and forests of the world, and "Living With Trees," on tree myths and spirits, tree products, and tree conservation. A handy and attractive addition to all collections. Paula Rohrlick, KLIATT
