|The native plants of Canada are the most significant of the
abundant natural resources of the country. They generate extensive employment
and productivity, and provide an amazing reservoir of food, fibre, medicine,
energy, building materials, and commercial goods.
Official Plant Emblems of Canada focuses on several dozen native plants that have become official emblems of the provinces, territories and the entire country. These are ambassadors for increasing awareness of the importance of biodiversity.
These emblems are documented through a most elaborate compilation of photographs, detailed illustrations and paintings ever produced.
The text contains a wealth of scientific information, but is presented in an accessible, user-friendly, entertaining style with hundreds of memorable, charming and humorous anecdotes.
|Price and availability subject to change.
