9780916251185: Baja California Plant Field Guide

This new edition of the Baja California Plant Field Guide discusses or describes over 715 different plants in more than 350 genera in 111 families. Of these, approximately 32% are endemic to the region, 50% can also be found in southern California (e.g., San Diego County), and about 45% are new additions in this edition. In a field guide like this it is impossible to address all of the plant species in our region, but we have tried to compensate by discussing the overall diversity of the selected plant families and genera in introductory paragraphs preceding each species discussion. In this manner, we hope to give the reader a better understanding of the plant diversity that is not directly supplied by our book in photos and text.

About the Author:

Jon P. Rebman hold the Mary and Dallas Clark Endowed Chair and has been the Curator of Botany at the San Diego Natural History Museum since 1996. For more than 22 years he has been conducting extensive floristic research in Baja California, Mexico and in San Diego and Imperial counties of California. Dr. Rebman obtained his doctoral degree in Botany from Arizona State University; his dissertation research elucidated the systematics of the genus Cylindropuntia (chollas) in the Cactus family of Baja California. Dr. Rebman is the director of the San Diego County Plant Atlas Project (sdplantatlas.org) and identifies/verifies all of the incoming specimens (over 55,000) that are obtained through this multi-year floristic project. He has published many scientific papers on the plants of the southern California/Baja California region including naming and describing many new species in Baja California. As a hobby, Dr. Rebman is a plant photographer and almost all of his photos are available and searchable online at the museum's botanical websites: bajaflora.org and sdplantatlas.org.

Review:

...an excellent book with information on ecology, florists, phyto-geography, plant communities, updating taxonomic and representative species of vegetation of the peninsula of Baja California. Jon Rebman, in my opinion is one of the best botanists and taxonomists of USA, he know very well the flora of southwestern USA and northwestern Mexico. His knowledge and passion for plants of Baja California, specially the cactus's family, is internationally recognized. Norman Roberts, would be satisfied with the excellent quality of information in this third edition. --Jose' Delgadillo-Rodriquez, Botanist UABC

This book of the unique plants of the Baja California Peninsula is the finest field guide I have had the privilege to use. It is extremely user-friendly, without even a tinge of dumb-down pandering. In fact,the book is much more than a field guide. I highly recommend it even if you never have the chance to witness the botanical treasures of the two Mexican states of this 1300 km-long peninsula. The highly informative 45-page introduction includes contributions of noted scientists, all writing in an accurate and accessible manner linked to informative color illustrations. More than 715 different plants in 111 plant families are described. Common names, when available, are provided in Spanish and English. The arrangement is alphabetical by family, genus, and species. You will find up-to-date taxonomy and family assignments, and most intriguing is author Jon Rebman giving us insider taxonomic information often alluding to potential alternative classifications and reasons behind such opinions. The text is not dull. The book finishes with a fine glossary, largely illustrated, a significant list of references, and a thorough index. The color photos are of exceptional quality, illustrating significant features of the entire spectrum of the flora in fact, overall this is certainly one of the finest-illustrated regional plant books. The
quality and quantity of color illustrations at so reasonable a
price ($35) is commendable. It is worth noting that photos in the book are also available on the San Diego Natural History Museum s bajaflora.org website of about 23,000 photos of plants and landscapes of the Baja California Peninsula. You don t have to go Baja California Peninsula to enjoy this book. Many of the families, genera, and some of the species also occur in New Mexico and southern Arizona. Just
look at the information woven into the text linked to the illustrations and you will be rewarded. What plant lover can turn down a chance to learn more about a land and its flora, ranging from mountaintop conifers and aspen to deserts with spectacular cacti, boojum trees those bizarre relatives of our native ocotillo and tropical denizens such as native figs and mangroves. I can t imagine a Southwestern native
plant person being without this book. We have waited a long time for this extensive revision of a botanical classic and the wait is worthwhile. It is gratifying to see the pioneering perseverance of Norman C. Roberts honored in such a splendid manner. --Richard Felger, Native Plant Society of New Mexico - Gila Chapter
