Ferns and Fern Allies of Canada, first published in 1989, is a comprehensive, illustrated guide for identifying all the species of ferns and fern allies known to occur in Canada. Each species is described, with information on its appearance, diagnostic features, habitat, and range; 159 maps illustrate known distributions across Canada. Keys are provided to each genus and species. An extensive glossary, list of references and index are also included. This new reprint edition includes all the original text in a slightly smaller field guide format and illustrations have been enlarged for improved usefulness. Although slightly dated in terms of family assignments of some species, the overall nomenclature for the book's genera and species remains very similar to that in popular usage today, making Ferns and Fern Allies of Canada an excellent reference and field guide for anyone studying ferns in North America. About the Authors: William J. Cody (1922-2009) was one of Canada's leading botanists and author of more than 340 articles, papers, and books, including Flora of the Yukon Territory. Cody worked for the Canadian Department of Agriculture for 41 years, before retiring in 1987. Donald M. Britton (1923-2012) was considered one of the preeminent fern specialists in North America, and spent most of his long career at the University of Guelph, Dept. of Botany and Genetics.

Since the publication of the first edition more than thirty years ago, The Flora of Alberta has become the standard guide for naturalists, botanists, and all those interested in the wildlife of the province. It provides an inventory of 1775 known vascular plant species- ferns, conifers, and flowering plants - that are native to Alberta, or if non-native, that have become established and grow wild int he province. All are grouped according to genus and family, with descriptions of species, genera, and families. Keys are provided to allow for the identification of all the known species, along with information on habitats in which species generally occur. The text for each species includes the chromosome number and indicates the geographical distribution in North America. Also included are 1158 provincial distribution maps, showing the locations of native species, and two specially prepared maps of the province - one indicating the distribution of major soil groups, the other distribution of major vegetation types. In the years since its initial publication The Flora of Alberta has been revised, updated, and considerably expanded while retaining the original format and purpose that have made it indispensable to a wide range of readers.

Budd's Flora of the Prairie Provinces, first published in 1979 and revised and updated in 1987, is a field-oriented manual for the identification of all known plants occurring in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Volume 1 includes the region's ferns and fern allies, conifers, and monocots (e.g., grasses, sedges and rushes, lilies, orchids, etc.) The companion Volume 2 treats the dicots ("wildflowers"; see ISBN 1523348690). Each family, genus and species is keyed, followed by concise descriptions of each species' key features, habitat and general range in the region. Numerous line drawings by the authors and b/w photographs of herbarium specimens are included throughout the text. Although somewhat dated in terms of taxonomic nomenclature, the book's thoroughness (1,974 species in 590 genera and 118 families are described in the two volumes), easy-to-use keys, and clear descriptions make Budd's Flora a valuable resource for anyone studying the plant life of the region's prairies, wetlands, forests, and mountains. Primary author A. C. Budd (1889-1960) was a long-time student of Canada's prairie flora and Range Botanist with Agriculture Canada. This latest edition was updated by his colleagues J. Looman and K.

Hawaii's Ferns and Fern Allies is the first comprehensive survey of Hawaii's ferns to be published in more than 100 years. The book covers endemic, indigenous, and naturalized ferns and fern allies (including rare and endangered taxa), providing dichotomous keys, basionyms and synonyms, technical descriptions and distributions, a glossary, and statistical information. The author addresses unresolved taxonomic problems and offers suggestions for future research. He includes information from Hawaiian folklore and mythology, describes uses of ferns by native Hawaiians, and updates Hawaiian common names. More than 100 line drawings illustrate all 222 species, varieties, and forms, and some hybrids. The volume is based on extensive fieldwork, studies of herbarium collections worldwide, and consultations with pteridologists, local ecologists, and collectors. It provides the much-needed scientific basis for a new, worldwide appreciation of Hawaiian ferns and fern allies and for major efforts to protect and conserve them. This well-researched and highly readable book will be enthusiastically received by amateur and professional naturalists, fern enthusiasts, and professional botanists.

Ferns are usually thought of as plants of moist, humid regions, and at first glance the Trans-Pecos region of Texas, a rugged portion of the arid Chihuahuan Desert, does not appear to be a likely location for ferns and their relatives. Yet in many seemingly unsuitable dry habitats, on shadowed slopes, in canyons, and near springs, seeps, and streams can be found sixty-four species of ferns and fourteen species of fern allies. This book is a complete review of the true ferns as well as the related spikemosses and scouring rushes of the Trans-Pecos. In a concise, readable introduction, the authors describe the region, which ranges in topography from desert floors to mountain peaks of over eight thousand feet, and the variations in climate and soils that allow ferns to survive in specific habitats. In clear language they describe the morphology, reproduction, and adaptability of ferns and fern allies. Detailed keys to the Trans-Pecos families, genera, and species allow anyone to identify an unknown fern from the region. The species descriptions give full scientific names, common names, synonyms, and descriptions of locations where the fern can be found, including specific information on their occurrence in Big Bend and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks. Wherever necessary, the species descriptions provide information on species that may be confused. Other features of the book are a quick identification guide, a checklist of the ferns and fern allies of the region, a glossary of terms, and a list of references. The book is illustrated with detailed line drawings of the habit and details of the plants, and distribution maps with each fern’s description show where the species can be located in the region. This book will be a valuable guide for anyone interested in the plant life of far western Texas and adjacent areas in the Chihuahuan Desert.
