Pennsylvania, a state of diverse geography and geology, is rich in flora. The second edition of The Plants of Pennsylvania identifies the nearly 3,400 species of trees, wildflowers, ferns, grasses, sedges, aquatic plants, and weeds native to or naturalized in the Commonwealth.
Retaining the clearly written identification keys and descriptions that made the first edition such an essential reference, this new edition has been reorganized to reflect recent advances in our understanding of plant relationships. Families and genera are listed in a sequence determined by current studies of plant molecular genetics, thus providing new insights for the study of botany. In addition, species have been added to the book as a result of new discoveries. The botanical illustrations of Anna Aniśko continue to complement the descriptions and add an element of beauty to the volume.
Developed in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Flora Project, and compiled by botanists at the Morris Arboretum, the official arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the second edition of The Plants of Pennsylvania is the authoritative guide to Pennsylvania's plant life. It will be indispensable to taxonomists, conservationists, ecologists, foresters, land planners, teachers, agricultural county agents, students, and amateur naturalists.
Indispensable... It covers all of Pennsylvania's vascular plants... Gardeners, amateur botanists, and naturalists will find The Plants of Pennsylvania to be practical, accessible, and a joy to use.
—Rhodora, Journal of the New England Botanical Club

Finally, an illustrated guide to the flora of Pennsylvania written by highly respected authorities! A highly technical but user-friendly manual; every serious amateur and professional naturalist in Pennsylvania will want a copy.
—Western Pennsylvania Conservancy

Botanists, ecologists, naturalists, and consultants throughout the Mid-Atlantic region will welcome this richly illustrated edition of the Pennsylvania flora. Although this second edition includes some newly discovered species occurrences, the big change is that the ordering of plant families and genera now reflects current understanding of evolutionary relationships, rather than being arranged alphabetically.
