This book is a comprehensive field guide to the common weeds across the Canadian prairie provinces.

With 112 weeds detailed, this book gives you full-color photos of the weeds at different growth stages. Weeds are color-coded by flower color for easy reference, and the full index lets you find the species you want by common, scientific or family name. Charts on life cycle and habitat provide valuable information while the maps help you see how widespread these weeds are. An opening section on weed identification gives tips on what to look for. And the handy coil binding lets you open the book out flat, so you can work with it in the field. 266 pages.
