Abstract: 

Wildflowers of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest by Merel Black and Emmet Judziewicz sets a new standard for wildflower books. This new book, published by Cornerstone Press and the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point Press, covers 1,087 species, including essentially every plant species in Wisconsin that might be considered a wildflower. The book includes over 2,100 color photographs, and 300 drawings, showing the important characters for identification. Each species is accompanied by a map of Wisconsin showing the counties in which the plant has been found. The text accompanying each species includes common names; the scientific names along with its meaning; an indication of status such as native, introduced, invasive, endangered, etc.; a description of the plant highlighting diagnostic characters; flowering dates; and habitats. An identification framework provides a guide to the traditional plant families, and the larger families include an illustrated guide to the genera or species.
