Botany in a Day
By Thomas J. Elpel, 235 pages
Looking for a faster, easier, and engaging way to identify plants? Botany in a Day is changing the way people learn about plants. Related plants have similar characteristics, and they often have similar uses. Rather than learning new plants one-at-a-time, it is possible to learn them by the hundreds based on plant family patterns. A one-day tutorial with Botany in a Day introduces eight of the world's most common plant families, applicable to more than 45,000 species of plants. Master these eight patterns and you'll have the skills to recognize an astonishing number of plants on any continent. Then it will be possible to instantly recognize a plant never before seen, and in many cases, to know its edible or medicinal properties on the spot - even before you have identified it down to the species!
Botany in a Day is principally written for North America, but is used and adored by readers all over the world. It is used as a textbook in universities, high schools, herbal schools, in nature programs, and is promoted in national parks.
