HASH(0x9f9ac180) von 5 Sternen Excellent Resource! 1. Oktober 2007
Von T. Ibsen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Botany in a Day provides an excellent overview to field botany. By learning plant characteristics by family, the reader can more quickly identify their plant by identifying the patterns each plant family presents. The book provides a page or two (or more!) on dozens of the most common families in the northern half of the US. Each plant family section contains additional information about the plant genera represented in this family. The keys to plant families allow the reader to quickly determine what section to turn to. This book is best coupled with a plant field guide to individual species that is grouped by family. You can use the Botany in a Day information to narrow your selection to the family and the field guide to identify the specific species.

I highly recommend this book to both lay and professional people who work with plants.

HASH(0x9f9b6738) von 5 Sternen Wonderful book for intuitive understanding of the subject 8. April 2006
Von Mary Engle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In the opening chapter, this book presents a wonderful simplified story of the evolution of plants, from a single cell to modern complex flowers. Both children and adults can gain a unique, intuitive understanding of this process from this explanation. My compliments to the author. He describes each plant family with interesting anecdotes and high quality line drawings. It's the first plant book whose lack of photographs didn't matter. Great tips for identifying families and individual plants have helped me enormously. Bravo!

HASH(0x9f9acce4) von 5 Sternen This book Changed My Life !!! 13. April 2010
Von Corey Hendricks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the most comprehensive, thoughtful, well written book I know of on plant identification and their subsequent utilization as a resource be it food, rope or medicine. I am in awe at the depth of experience the author has with the plants in the book. The grouping and classification is clear and interesting. The patterns used to identify are within reach of anyone, its as if I've been given a key to unlock some of the beautiful mysteries of nature. I have a deeper appreciation and understanding of nature. Now I am truly participating in nature.

So far it has allowed me to teach my kids (3 and 5) more about plants than I learned in 25 years! I love this book.

I appreciate the Medicinal Properties of Plants section which has enough detail for a chemist but is understandable to the layperson as well. The entire book is written like that; professional or layperson will get a profound lesson. Its like an entire course on wild plants but written in a reference manual style with a very personal touch.

This has given me a level of confidence I have always desired. Any human being should be given a copy of this book at birth! This should be in every library and taught in every school. If animals could read I would recommend it to them to. Peace

HASH(0x9f9b990c) von 5 Sternen Teaches the patterns method of plant identification 9. Dezember 2004
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Any interested in plant identification should consider Botany In A Day: The Patterns Method Of Plant Identification as an important guide. Thomas Elpel (Director of Hollowtop Outdoor Primitive School, Pony, Montana) deftly teaches the patterns method of plant identification, providing a method for learning about groupings of plants based on the idea that related plants have similar patterns for identification, and similar uses. Black and white line drawings accompany descriptions of different plant families and their identification processes.

HASH(0x9f9b9abc) von 5 Sternen bad title, great book 10. Juli 2011
Von A. Chong - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book does a great job of introducing the subject of botany, much more
systematically than the typical "field guide." It concentrates on getting
you started into the right family with identification, and also listing
some of the notable and edible plants in each genus.

It lists edibility, but given that you don't really have a solid identification
of the plant, I wouldn't eat something based on it. He does at least list
the source of the edibility info in parenthesis. And he's pulled info from
5 or more sources.

I thought the intro and evolution of plants section in the beginning as well
as the half dozen most common families section in the front was good, succinct
and well written. There is a slightly confusing dichotomy key in the front too.

The bulk of the guide is an overview of each family, generally one (or one subfamily)
per page that gives a good information on the characteristics of the family and its
constituent genuses.

Illustrations look like they're from Britton and Brown, with lots of notes
added. For instance, there is a black and white line drawing and arrows pointing
out "3 stamens, 2 carpals, etc"

Text is slightly Montana-centric, but not overbearingly so.

Overall, a great intro to plants in 200 pages.
