Invasive Plants: a guide to identification, impacts, and control of common North American species
Sylvan Ramsey Kaufman and Wallace Kaufman
Why we like it: This handy guide is organized like a field guide, which is a familiar format for many naturalists. Major invasive species of North America are covered, with information on identification, habitat, and range presented alongside nice pictures. Especially useful are the breakdowns about the role each plant plays in its ecosystem. The authors also identify particularly aggressive plants with little value to wildlife and share appropriate management techniques, which aids in prioritizing removal of certain species. Quick guides, a handy index, and many resources make it a well-organized addition to your library.
