This unique reference work describes over 350 wildflowers and flowering shrubs that grow in New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, and Manzano Mountains, as well as neighbouring ranges, including the Manzanita, San Pedro, Ortiz, and other lower-elevation mountains in central portions of the state.

With more than a thousand colour photographs accompanied by visual descriptions, the easy-to-use guide organizes plants first by flower colour, then alphabetically by family common name, then by scientific name. The authors also include information on traditional uses of the plants by indigenous peoples and an extensive glossary and bibliography.

A brief geological history and description of the ranges examines the different life zones and ecosystems and how these relate to elevation and microclimates. Wildflower enthusiasts and hikers will welcome this useful book.

"An exceptional volume, Wildflowers of the Northern and Central Mountains of New Mexico could well serve as a template for similar studies of wildflowers in other parts of the country."--Midwest Book Review
"An abundantly visual guide."--New Mexico Magazine
"An experienced plant scientist and an avid hiker known for her vast knowledge of New Mexico wildflowers have produced this authoritative and beautiful guide to the flora of the Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, Manzano, and other mountains of northern and central New Mexico.
