Field Guide to Manzanitas – California, North America, and Mexico, by Michael Kauffman, Tom Parker & Michael Vasey. Photographs by Jeff Bisbee.
Manzanita’s center of biodiversity is in the California Floristic Province, where they are the “rock stars” of woody shrub diversity. Ranging from the Sierra Nevada mountains to coastal bluffs along the Pacific, from temperate rainforests along the North Coast to arid mountain slopes in Southern California, a wealth of manzanita species and subspecies can be found in an astonishing array of environments.
The Field Guide includes:
• Color plates for identifying all 107 taxa
• Accurate and updated range maps
• Descriptions of 28 destinations to explore manzanita diversity in the field
• Spectacular photos from across North America
