This is the long, catalog/marketing description of the product.Montana has a contrasting landscape marked by four main ecosystems: montane forest, intermountain grassland, plains grassland, and shrub grassland. These support over 2000 plant species, including state flower Bitterroot and state tree Ponderosa Pine. For many people, plants represent a major part of an ecosystem's character, yet sifting through such a diverse array of species can be challenging. It helps, then, to focus on the most familiar plants to establish a solid base of knowledge. To do so, a portable reference like Montana Trees & Wildflowers is invaluable. This beautifully illustrated collection features 140 common trees, shrubs, and wildflowers as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and botanists who wish to forge deeper connections with the land through its attendant flora. Made in the USA.
