Field Guide To The Common Weeds Of Kansas

This handbook illustrates and describes the 200 kinds of common weeds found in Kansas along roadsides and in yards, gardens, and cultivated fields. Designed as a reference for the general reader with no special training in botany, it will be of value to farmers, ranchers, gardeners, or anyone who must control weeds.A detailed line drawing of the plant and a distribution map is provided for each species. The description lists its common and scientific names and includes information on the plant's typical size, stem, leaves, flowers, particular arrangement of flowers, and habitat. Useful commentary about the weed such as whether it is poisonous to livestock is also given. The book includes a glossary of botanical terms and an index of plant names.A handy system of "finding lists" enable the user, working with only three or fewer structural features of a plant, to arrive at easy, on-the-spot identification of an unknown weed.

Although I live in a neighboring state, not Kansas itself, this book has been very useful for identifying weeds in my sustainably landscaped yard. We're letting parts of the yard go natural, and we're picking and choosing which weeds are allowed to grow based on some of the information in this book (height, toxicity, whether the plant is invasive, etc.). There are no photographs--which helps keep the price of the book low--but there is a good line drawing for each plant. This book has been a reliable resource for identifying a variety of plants and has been a worthwhile investment.

Although this book lacks the full color photos that some other books provide, the line drawings are accurate and detailed enough to show those little things you really need to know when identifying plants. Provides lots of information in a well organized format. I will use this great little book in conjunction with some others that provide photos.

It would be a lot better if the book had photographs of the weeds instead of drawings.

The book was ok but would have been more helpful with color pics of the weeds. But I didn't pay much so it's all good
