Product description

Desert flora have adapted to the extremes of heat and aridity, much like desert animals. The seasonal visitor or year round resident will find Southwestern Desert Plants to be the perfect pocket-sized, folding guide to familiar trees, shrubs, cacti and wildflowers. Richly detailed illustrations highlight over 140 familiar species found in the southwestern desert region. Created and printed in the USA, this guide was updated in 2012 with a new cover design and a back panel map highlighting prominent botanical sanctuaries. Durable and lightweight, it conveniently folds to fit into a pocket when you want to reach for your water bottle, camera or binoculars. This is the one to take on your next Southwestern desert adventure!
