Gleason's Plants of Michigan is a major revision and expansion of The Plants of Michigan by Henry A. Gleason---the 1918 classic field guide to the flowering plants and trees found in Michigan, neighboring Great Lakes States, and southern Ontario. Richard K. Rabeler has completely updated the family descriptions and added easy-to-use keys. Information on habitats and geographical distribution is now included as well as a comprehensive index of plant names, an illustrated section on terminology, a glossary, and an introduction to botany in Michigan.
Gleason's Plants of Michigan will be useful to naturalists, environmental specialists, botanists, and all who love the wildflowers and native flora of Michigan and the surrounding areas.
Richard K. Rabeler is a Collections Manager for Vascular Plants and an Assistant Research Scientist at the University of Michigan Herbarium. He is a past coeditor of the Michigan Botanist and a contributor to the accounts of the Caryophyllaceae (Pink family) in the Flora of North America, Flora of China, and Steyermark's Flora of Missouri.
