Wildflowers of Ohio is a user-friendly, full-color guide to 286 species of wildflowers found growing throughout the state. The book opens with a succinct but informative introduction, diagrams of flower parts and leaf arrangements, and a glossary of important botanical terms. It is then divided into five sections - for white, yellow to orange, pink to red, blue to purple, and green to brown flowers. Color-coded tabs on the right-hand pages expedite locating the proper section, as does the innovative side-turn design. Within each section, flowers are arranged in taxonomic order from the simplest to most complex. Each photograph is accompanied by a description of the plant's field characteristics, habitat, blooming period, range of distribution in Ohio, relationship to the environment, and uses by humans.
