Fall color and woodland harvests: a guide to the more colorful fall leaves and fruits of the eastern forests
For a lunch break visit to see an especially colorful maple in a nearby park or a month-long adventure from New England to the Smokies moving south with the color, Fall Color and Woodland Harvestsis a wonderful companion for those who appreciate autumn's vibrant spectacle. Rich with color photographs that capture the hues of the season, this volume offers a species-by-species guide to the leaves of 100 species of the eastern United States and the fruits and seeds (the woodland harvests) of an additional 47 species, paying particular attention to where the plants occur and their contribution to the fall color palate. The authors explain the biological processes that result in leaf-color change and offer helpful tips on when and where to go see the best color.
