The Illustrated Flora Of Illinois

New in the series.


Flowering Plants: Asteraceae, Part 2

By Robert H. Mohlenbrock.

In this second volume on the aster family, botanist Robert H. Mohlenbrock recognizes 133 species in 42 genera, as well as seven hybrids and 29 lesser taxa.

Flowering Plants: Asteraceae, Part 2 provides an easy-to-use key to the genera and species and a complete description and nomenclatural and habitat notes for each plant, including its usefulness, if applicable. The book details the most important features of the species and includes common, locally used names. Synonyms that have been applied to species and lesser taxa in Illinois are given for each species.



Grasses: Panicum to Danthonia, second edition

By Robert H. Mohlenbrock.

Since the publication of the first edition of Grasses: Panicum to Danthonia in 1973, 20 additional taxa of grasses have been discovered in Illinois that are properly placed in this volume.

In addition, numerous nomenclatural changes have occurred for plants already known from the state, and many distributional records have been added.

This second edition updates the status of grasses in Illinois. Paul W. Nelson has provided illustrations for all of the additions.
