Woody Plants of Kentucky and Tennessee : The Complete Winter Guide to their Identification and Use

Woody Plants of Kentucky and Tennessee : The Complete Winter Guide to their Identification and Use RHODORA, Vol. 116, No. 967, pp. 363­366, 2014 E Copyright 2014 by the New England Botanical Club BOOK REVIEW Woody Plants of Kentucky and Tennessee: The Complete Winter Guide to their Identification and Use by Ronald L. Jones and B. Eugene Wofford. 2013. i­x + 143 pp. ISBN 978-0-8131-42500 $45.00 (hardcover), ebook available. University Press of Kentucky, Lexington, KY. Anyone who has ever been challenged with identifying plants in the winter will welcome this helpful addition to the literature on identification of woody plants. The authors, Ronald Jones of Eastern Kentucky University and Eugene Wofford of the University of Tennessee, have teamed up to give us a winter guide to the woody plants in their respective states, a treatment covering 172 genera (142 native and 30 non-native) and 457 species and lesser taxa (381 native and 76 non-native). Not many treatments of woody plants in winter exist for all or portions of eastern North America. A few old standbys are Blakeslee and Jarvis (1913), Trelease (1931), Harlow (1946), and Core and Ammons (1958, reprint with corrections 1973). These works rely on dichotomous keys, line drawings, or black and white photographs (mainly of twig features and some fruit parts) http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rhodora Allen Press
