This photo book is intended for helping children to become familiar with the wildflowers and the general plant related terms. In this photo book, more than 220 beautiful wildflower pictures taken from 111 wildflower species are included.
The plant species are botanically classified into 36 plant families. Each wildflower species is briefly described about its general structure of flowers, leaves, stems, the blooming time, native place, and the edibility, toxicity or uses in traditional herbal medicine if it has. The aquatic and parasitic wildflowers are grouped separately for their typical characteristics. Brief description of each plant family is also included to provide a general picture of the common characteristics in the plant family. A glossary for the plant specific terms in the text is prepared.
Although all the pictures were taken in North Texas, most of the wildflower species in this photo book are native to Americas. They brighten our life in Texas, but also in other parts of United State, and bring the pleasure to us when we exercise in the morning or drive on the road. This photo book is prepared for children, but it will be also useful for adults who are interested in wildflowers.
