A Pocket Guide to Hawaii's Trees and Shrubs is the most complete guide available to both native and naturalized trees, shrubs, and large vines in the Hawaiian Islands. Included are photos of all the species most likely to be encountered by residents and visitors alike. Small enough for a backpack, but complete enough to be a valuable bookshelf reference, this book is the perfect addition to any naturalist's library. Although the photographs will be valuable to botanists, the text is written for the amateur. This guidebook provides a visual approach to identification, emphasizing obvious field characters that can be seen without resorting to a hand-lens. The plants are arranged by habitat so that the reader will gain a thorough overview of Hawaiian ecology and an appreciation for the uniqueness of these beautiful islands. No naturalist and nature over in Hawaii should be without this guide.
