Wildflowers of the Northern Nevada Cold Desert


This book was written for the person with a beginning interest in wildflowers, and designed to be easy to use.  Color photos of the flowers are arranged by color, and the booklet shows only the most common wildflowers of the local area.  The emphasis of the book is plants found at lower elevations, primarily the sagebrush and pinyon-juniper dominated habitats on the valley floors and foothills of northern Nevada.  Thus one is not faced with a book of several hundred pages and the problem of eliminating flowers not found here.  Information about the Great Basin, some common non-native plants, a glossary and other features are included.  It would make a great gift for someone who is beginning to take an interest in native plants.

The photographs for the book were provided by several NNPS members (native species) and the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (non-native species).  Many members contributed writing, editing, and graphic design skills to complete the book and funding for the printing was provided by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and members Diane Clarkson and Mary Winter.

The book contains photos and descriptions of 140 species in 80 pages.  It is approximately 4 by 9 inches and 1/4 inch thick and weighs only 4.5 ounces, making it small enough to carry easily while hiking.
