To compensate for the book's wide geographic scope. a key has been place next to each plant highlighting zones in which the species might be found.

While some chaparral plant species require fire to germinate seeds and reproduce, Xylococcus bicolor does not, nor does it require openings left by. Jepson's "A Flora of California".

While some chaparral plant species require fire to germinate seeds and reproduce, Xylococcus bicolor does not, nor does it require openings left by wildfires. But as a chaparral member species it must have a means of coping with wildfire. It does so by resprouting from the base after its top has burned away. This mechanism works very well unless a second fire follows closely after the first Ecology.

One of my favorite go-to reference books for tromping around San Diego. Not completely comprehensive, but a very good selection from the various biomes of the county.

Excellent book for very specific botanical information not limited to San Diego County - I use it in the Tecate, Mexico, area.

I am a lover of native Californian plants. I partially grew up in San Diego county until I was in 7th grade, then lived in Orange County for nearly 10 years before living in New Jersey for 8.25 years, and then returning to Orange County almost 2 years ago. I have always been homesick for San Diego County, and I have the lovely vibes, beautiful towns, and of course, gorgeous native plants along with this lovely book to thank for the nostalgia of a wonderful corner of the US. This book has a great breadth of knowledge, and an even greater array of plant listings. I bought the book at the visitor center of Mission Trails Regional Park by Tierrasanta (East of Clairemont Mesa) in San Diego County. I love learning about plants I never knew before, and this book has helped me identify many more. Also, the book contains an introduction highlighting the various climactic regimes and vegetation types in the county. The intro also has photos of each plant zone with brief captions of common plants in them. There are also color photos for each plant, and most photos have a location listed for where they were taken. The book is smartly organized by Gymnosperms- the cone bearing plants (Tecate Cypress, Jeffrey Pine, Incense-Cedar, etc), the Dicot perms- flowering plants (Big Leaf Maple, Toyon, Coast Live Oak, etc), and by Monocot Angiosperms (Grasses, Fan Palm, etc). It is further divided by plant stature: Part One is woody trees and shrubs, and Part Two is herbaceous plants. I love field guides highlighting the beauty of Southern California's plants, and this one for sure makes me dream of (AND plan) my next hike in San Diego County during which I will see more species I have never seen before. It has also helped me identify many species of plants further north in Orange and Los Angeles Counties.

First of all, the reason I bought this book is because I'm a biologist who goes out in the field to survey plants and animals, and as I'm always finding new plants, I can always use a good reference book to help. This book is excellent in that it has tons of pictures of most all of the plants you could encounter in San Diego County, and the surrounding counties as well. As a picture reference this book is great, other than that, you'll need to consult a more in depth book or Jepson's. There is little to no info on any of the plants, just a very brief one to two sentence blurb on any species, and sometimes multiple species are lumped together so it make it even more crowded.
Another thing that was nice was the location indicator, which was bolded for all the different "zones" that a plant could be found in (i.e. desert, coastal, mountain, foothill, transition). This makes it a little easier to use by a layperson in that they can exclude plants based on their location.

Overall a good reference book to add to your collection, but it's definitely not a standalone.

Very good format and review of the Native Plants found in this area. This would be the book I'd take into the field on hikes or when visiting new places in the county that still present California Native Plants in their natural state.

That being said, I can't understand why some sellers continually ask obscenely high prices for certain books when other places/websites provide fair and sensible pricing of the same or newer editions of the same book. The current 2011 edition is easily obtained for under $30 elsewhere.
Please come out with a new addition or reprint! I borrow a copy from the library and would like my own copy. Very useful for understanding what plants "belong" in your area.
