Twenty-five years of labor went into Trees, Shrubs, and Woody Vines of the Southwest, by the late Robert A. Vines, which describes and illustrates more than 1,200 species of native and naturalized woody plants of the southwestern United States. The book covers Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. The author traveled more than 250,000 miles by car, on foot, and horseback. The species described are grouped into 102 chapters, each chapter representing a different plant family. Accompanying the text are more than 1,200 black-and-white drawings by Sarah Kahlden Arendale.

Trees, Shrubs, and Woody Vines of Northern Florida and Adjacent Georgia and Alabama

This complete and authoritative work provides identification keys, full descriptions, and line drawings that make it possible to identify 383 native and naturalized species of trees, shrubs, and woody vines found in northern Florida and adjacent Georgia and Alabama. Casual observers of the lower coastal plain may at first see a landscape dominated by pines. Closer observation reveals a great diversity of plants--patterns of contrasting vegetation caused by the complex physical and biotic factors at work. In this richly vegetated area, a rise of only four feet in elevation can bring significant changes in community composition, changes comparable, perhaps, to those occurring on a four-thousand-foot mountainside. The descriptions in this guide are useful not only for identification but also for their help in enhancing the user's knowledge of the plants. Each description is followed by information on the habitat in which the species is known to occur, the species' general location within the area under study, and its overall geographic range. Whenever possible, vegetative characteristics have been used in the keys so that the book is useful beyond the sometimes brief flowering seasons of the species. The use of technical terminology has been minimized in the keys and descriptions, and a full glossary is provided. Based on thirty years of constant study and firsthand observation, Robert K. Godfrey's manual is a definitive work on this area's notably diverse woody flora, from the common longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) and Jackson-brier (Smilax smallii) to locally rarer species such as the fragrant sumac (Rhus aromatica), Spanish bayonet (Yucca gloriosa), and ornamental Chinese tallow-tree (Sapium sebiferum).

Tennessee is home to more than four hundred species of woody plants, but until now there has been no comprehensive guide to them. This work fills that gap, as B. Eugene Wofford and Edward W. Chester provide identification keys to all native and naturalized species of trees, shrubs, and woody vines found in the state. The book is organized by plant types, which are divided into gymnosperms and angiosperms. For each species treated, the authors include both scientific and common names, a brief description, information on flowering and fruiting seasons, and distribution patterns. Photographs illustrate more than ninety five percent of species, and the text is fully indexed by families and genera, scientific names, and common names. A glossary is keyed to photographs in the text to illustrate definitions. In their introduction, Wofford and Chester provide an overview of the Tennessee flora and their characteristics, outline Tennessee's physiographic regions, and survey the history of botanical research in the state. The authors also address the historical and environmental influences on plant distribution and describe comparative diversity of taxa within the regions. Guide to Trees, Shrubs, and Woody Vines of Tennessee will be a valuable resource and identification guide for professional and lay readers alike, including students, botanists, foresters, gardeners, environmentalists, and conservationists interested in the flora of Tennessee. The Authors: B. Eugene Wofford is director of the herbarium at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He is the author of numerous articles and books, including Guide to the Vascular Plants of the Blue Ridge. Edward W. Chester is professor of biology at Austin Peay State University. His articles on subjects ranging from taxonomy to plant systematics have appeared in Journal of the Southern Appalachian Botanical Society, Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club, Wetlands, and many other publications.

Shrubs and Vines of Iowa

Shrubs and vines, often literally overshadowed by trees, also receive much less attention than their taller neighbors, and yet they are very important elements of the region’s natural landscape. A guide to these interesting and useful plants, this book identifies all 150 shrubs and vines native to Iowa, along with frequently seen naturalized ones. Here you’ll find the widely distributed buttonbush, the distinctive pagoda dogwoods, sumacs with their striking fall foliage, the adaptable ninebark, the attractive grape honeysuckle, the many species of Rubus and wild grapes that provide food for birds and animals, willows with their graceful promise of spring, and the diverse viburnums. Like trees, shrubs and vines are woody plants that are easy to observe year round. The first part of this book will help you identify them. Illustrated keys take you through the identification process one step at time; these are followed by images and descriptions of all but the rarest species. Noted naturalists Peter van der Linden and Donald Farrar also provide information about each species’ distribution, ecology, and uses. Summer and winter features are covered separately to facilitate identification at these two very different times of year. Chapters about the culture and natural history of shrubs and vines explain why the plants grow where they do in nature and show how to use them effectively in outdoor spaces. Plants native to Iowa have much to offer to the landscaper: winter hardiness, resistance to drought and climatic extremes, and food and shelter for native wildlife and pollinators. Many natives are ornamental as well, providing attractive flowers, bright autumn displays, and colorful stems or fruits in winter. The authors offer tips for selecting, planting, and caring for these plants effectively. With native plants, you can create a landscape that is sustainable, authentic to place, and satisfying to you. Iowa and midwestern arborists, conservationists, horticulturists, landscape architects, gardeners, and all those who appreciate the beauty and value of native plants will find Shrubs and Vines of Iowa immensely useful.
