This classic of midwestern natural history is back in print
with a new format and new photographs. Originally published in 1979,
Wildflowers of Iowa Woodlands introduced many naturalists to the
beauty and diversity of the native plants of the wooded communities that
once covered more than 6 million acres of the state. Now redesigned
with updated names and all-new images, this reliable field companion
will introduce woodland wildflowers to a new generation of outdoor
enthusiasts in the Upper Midwest.

The species accounts are
accompanied by brilliant full-page color photographs by Larry Stone,
Thomas Rosburg, and Carl Kurtz. In clear, straightforward, and
accessible prose, authors Sylvan Runkel and Alvin Bull provide common,
scientific, and family names; the Latin or Greek meaning of the
scientific names; habitat and blooming times; and a complete description
of plant, flower, and fruit. Particularly interesting is the
information on the many ways in which Native Americans and early
pioneers used these plants for everything from pain relief to
insecticides to tonics.

Iowa’s original savannas,
woodlands, and forests were cleared with amazing thoroughness, yet
enough beauty and diversity remain to give joy to hikers, birders, and
mushroomers. Wildflowers of Iowa Woodlands will inspire both
amateurs and professionals with the desire to learn more about the
wonders of today’s woodlands.
