This is an attractive "coffee table" book that could add to the reference library of the non-professional or, to a limited extent, the professional who has a tangential interest in plant communities. It is not a technical volume on flora nor does it appear that it was intended for field use. Both authors hold degrees in landscape architecture, and the emphasis appears to be on species that could be used in a natural design setting.
