Excellent reference book for identifying plants in natural areas around Ottawa. In addition to the normal flowers, trees, and shrubs it also includes lichens/mosses and grasses/sedges. I bought my own copy.

Very useful. Used this with the kids to find out what is growing in the woods behind our house. Kids loved finding the "Jack-in-the-Pulpit".
