About the book:

Authoritative text, clear photography, and a systematic approach make the Smithsonian Handbook of Trees the most comprehensive guide to a wide range of species from around the world. Packed with over 1,000 full--color photographs of more than 500 trees, it is designed to cut through the complex process of identification, enabling you to recognize a species instantly. Identification Made Easy: For beginners and established enthusiasts alike, the Smithsonian Handbook of Trees explains what a tree is, how trees are classified, and how to keep a record of trees you have seen. To help you in the initial stages of identification, the book provides a visual key that shows you the difference between conifers, broadleaves, and palms, identifies each genus by leaf type, and guides you to the correct species entry. A concise glossary defines technical and scientific terms. Photo--Encyclopedic Approach: Expertly written and thoroughly authenticated, each species entry combines a precise description with annotated photographs to highlight each tree's chief characteristics and distinguishing features. A full--color illustration, showing the spread, height, and leaf persistence of the species, as well as color--coded bands providing at--a--glance facts for quick reference, complete every entry.
