“This is an indispensable reference Highly recommended.”-Choice “At last! Gargiullo has developed a guide specific to native plants in the New York City region that not only will be useful to master gardeners and professionals in landscape architecture, horticulture, and urban forestry, but also scientists in the fields of botany and ecology. At a time when many of our native plant species in the region are endangered by the loss of habitat and competition from invasive species, this book is a welcome reference for those who endeavor to protect them!”-Richard V. Pouyat, U.S. Forest Service “Dr. Marge Gargiullo spent more than ten years as a plant ecologist with the New York City Parks Department’s acclaimed Natural Resources Group. There are real, negative impacts of nonnative invasive species in our city and increasingly around the world. This guide to native plants and their suitability for the range of local settings in the metropolitan area will be a valuable tool for both practitioners and students.”-Adrian Benepe, commissioner, New York City Department of Parks and Recreation
