In this comprehensive volume Donald D. Cox gathers substantial data on simple field plants in Eastern North America and with great clarity he studies their profound impact on regional ecosystems and the ecology of the earth. This includes origins and types of soils and how these soils relate to vegetation; climate and human culture; plants and fungi growth in fields; adaptations for survival; field plant reproduction and seed dispersal; and toxic, medicinal, and edible plants that flourish in fields. Cox provides complete and accurate details for readers interested in collecting and/or preserving field plants. He focuses on field conservation and habitat preservation throughout the book. A final chapter offers special projects and investigations for those who wish to go a step beyond collecting and identifying plants. This book is an indispensable reference for professional and amateur naturalists as well as students and the general public.
