Field Guide to Wildflowers of Nebraska and the Great Plains

Second Edition

From the mixed-grass prairies of the Panhandle in the west, to the Sandhills prairie and mixed-grass prairies in central Nebraska, to the tallgrass prairies in the east, the state is home to hundreds of wildflower species, yet the primary guide to these flowers has been out of print for almost two decades. Now back in a second edition with updated nomenclature, refined plant descriptions, better photographs where improvements were called for, and a new design, Jon Farrar’s Field Guide to Wildflowers of Nebraska and the Great Plains, originally published by NEBRASKAland magazine and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, is a visual treat and educational guide to some of the region’s showiest and most interesting wildflowers. Organizing species by color, Farrar provides scientific, common, and family names; time of flowering; distribution both for Nebraska specifically and for the Great Plains in general; and preferred habitat including soil type and plant community from roadsides to woodlands to grasslands. Descriptions of each species are succinct and accessible; Farrar packs a surprising amount of information into a compact space. For many species, he includes intriguing notes about edibility, medicinal uses by Native Americans and early pioneers, similar species and varieties, hybridization, and changes in status as plants become uncommon or endangered. Superb color photographs allow each of the 274 wildflowers to be easily identified and pen-and-ink illustrations provide additional details for many species. It is a joy to have this new edition riding along on car seats and in backpacks helping naturalists at all levels of expertise explore prairies, woodlands, and wetlands in search of those ever-changing splashes of color we call wildflowers.

Die mehrfach ausgezeichnete Schauspielerin Drew Barrymore erzählt die lustigsten, eindrucksvollsten und ergreifendsten Geschichten aus ihrem Leben. Angefangen bei ihrer Jugend als Kinderstar, über die skandalträchtigen Teenager-Jahre bis hin zu ihrem heutigen Leben als glückliche Mutter von zwei Töchtern. Wildflower ist ein Porträt von Drews Leben in einzelnen Geschichten, in denen sie zurückblickt auf ein bewegtes Leben voller Abenteuer, Herausforderungen und unglaublicher Erfahrungen. Weshalb das Wäschewaschen ihr, als sie mit 14 Jahren alleine lebte, möglicherweise das Leben rettete, wie sie in den Randbezirken von New Orleans einmal mit einem Wohnmobil unter einem Tankstellendach feststeckte, wie sie ganz persönlich Abschied von ihrem Vater nahm, der diese Rolle niemals erfüllte, weshalb sie mit Cameron Diaz auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Adrenalinkick Fallschirmspringen ging – all diese und noch viele weitere Geschichten und Erfahrungen sind in Wildflower enthalten. Ein buntes Bouquet von Geschichten einer faszinierenden Frau, Mutter und Persönlichkeit. »Eine reine Freude ... Wenn Sie Drew Barrymore bisher nur sympathisch fanden ... nach der Lektüre ihrer Essays werden Sie sie vergöttern.« - New York Times Book Review

Compiled by naturalists Campbell and Lynn Loughmiller, with the technical assistance of Lynn Sherrod, Texas Wildflowers is an authoritative field guide with a personal touch in the many notes the Loughmillers included about the plants they described and photographed. This new edition of Texas Wildflowers retains the charm of the Loughmillers' book while emphasizing 61 additional species and bringing the plant taxonomy and nomenclature up to date. Like its predecessor, it includes all the features you need to identify the wildflowers of Texas: 381 full-color, close-up photos that show every wildflower in the book, including over 200 photos that are new to this edition. 370 species accounts that include the plant's scientific and common names, a description of its appearance, and its range, habitat, and blooming season. Descriptions of 73 wildflower families, from Acanthaceae to Zygophyllaceae. Indexes to help you identify flowers by their Latin name and common name. A guide to taxonomic updates in this edition. A map, glossary, illustrated glossary, and bibliography for further reading. Lady Bird Johnson, author of the first edition's foreword, says of this new edition of Texas Wildflowers, "How delighted I am the University of Texas Press and the Wildflower Center are preserving Campbell and Lynn Loughmiller's legacy by revising and updating this beautiful and invaluable book about Texas wildflowers! Not only does it contain a wealth of knowledge, it also awakens our awareness of the splendor of nature and joyous lift of spirit it brings."
