Product description

Review

“The encyclopedic Weeds of North America, by Richard Dickinson and France Royer, is going to have pride of place on my bedside table for years to come. It covers more than 600 species from 69 plant families at every stage of growth. Royer’s photographs are almost perversely alluring. . . . How can you not be ensnared by a book populated by prostrate pigweed, tansy ragwort and dog-strangling vine?”
(New York Times Book Review)

“Encyclopedic in scope, Dickinson and Royer’s Weeds of North America is the first to cover North American weeds at every stage of growth. Five hundred species are included, making this an essential reference for all who wish to understand the science of the all-powerful weed.”
(James A. Baggett Better Homes and Gardens)

“Learning to identify various weeds at all stages of life will help you work quickly—and save you from yanking up a zinnia sprout because you think it’s knotweed. Our features and garden editor, Melissa Ozawa, often refers to Weeds of North America.”
(Martha Stewart Living)

“Beautiful color images. . . . This comprehensive identification guide will aid in weed ecology and control.”
(Library Journal)

“This work by plant taxonomist Dickinson and photographer Royer will be useful for botanists, range scientists, and other professionals; gardeners; and also concerned citizens, who play an increasingly active role in weed identification and control. The key to species is elegantly brief with thumbnail photos and a few words for demarcation; it is suitable for use by dedicated amateurs.”
(Choice)

“One of the best resources ever for those wishing to know their weeds.”
(A Way to Garden)

“An ambitious identification guide laid out in the clearest possible terms.”
(Chicago Book Review)

2015 Winner
(American Horticultural Society Book Award)

Weeds of North America offers excellent narratives and fantastic pictures of all growing stages of each weed assisting in identifying various species through numerous means. It is a very handy, easy-to-use guide with Quick identifications, descriptions, and color photos which will benefit field staff in accomplishing weed management programs.”
(Jim Broatch, Pest Management Specialist and Jennifer Zuidhof, Cropping Systems Technician)
