For ease of identification, the plants are arranged by flower color or growth form, providing a convenient way to distinguish a great majority of plants in any given woodland. Generous treatment is given to all major vascular plant groups of the forest, such as wildflowers, ferns, shrubs, trees, grasses, and sedges. Michael A. Homoya not only helps with identification, but also offers information on a plant's habitat, flowering period, familial relationships, biology, and connections to Indiana. For the garden enthusiast and habitat restorer, there is a section on landscaping and natural community restoration using native forest plants. A portion of the proceeds from each sale of this book go to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for land protection and stewardship.

This book explores the Indiana landscape, past and present, the seven defined natural regions of the state, and the current plant and animal life, while pondering how the land has been affected by people and how to protect what remains. The Natural Heritage of Indiana is not only a celebration of natural wonders and nature's beauty, it is also a record of misuse and ignorance and a call to arms for those interested in preserving Indiana's environment.
