A Manual of California Vegetation, Second Edition
California is famous for its beautiful plant displays. This guide to California’s plant communities focuses on conserving both the individual species and the surrounding habitat. The vegetation classification system introduced in the first Manual of California Vegetation has since become widely accepted as the state standard. This completely updated edition has been expanded to include: Over 485 descriptions, 352 vegetation maps, descriptions of regional variation, detailed life history information, data on fire, flooding, and other natural processes, restoration and other management considerations, and revised and expanded lists of references.

California has one of the most species rich moss floras in North America. During the last 50 years alone the checklist of California mosses has nearly doubled, yet the moss flora is seldom studied by botanists. CNPS is proud to offer this color photographic guide as a portal into this truly remarkable group of plants. Designed to encourage both amateur and professional botanists to take up an interest in California’s mosses, this guide contains over 2,200 color photographs and 1,100 black and white drawings illustrating all but five of the state’s 600+ moss species.
