CHOICE Review

With a pedigree dating to 1981, this new edition (1st ed., CH, Jun'04, 41-5909), by Stubbendieck and Bryan (both, Univ. of Nebraska, Lincoln) and Hatch (Texas A&M), is a rather minor evolutionary update of a 2003 work that in turn was a revolutionary upgrade of five previous incarnations published under the title North American Range Plants (1st ed., 1981; 2nd ed., CH, Nov'82; 5th ed., 1997) by Stubbendieck, Hatch, and K. J. Hirsch. This latest revision "contains further refinements in the nomenclature, distribution, illustrations, and descriptions of ... the two hundred species ... selected because of their abundance, desirability, or noxious properties." The 200 species include 88 grasses, 6 graminoids, and 106 forbs and woody plants, including 1 fern and 5 gymnosperms. This is an excellent work. However, because the revisions in the 2011 edition are so modest, the still perfectly usable 2003 version suffices. Only latest-edition fetishists and libraries that do not own the earlier edition will need to acquire this title. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels of readership. R. Schmid emeritus, University of California, Berkeley
