Botany in a Day APG
Looking for a faster, easier, and engaging way to identify plants? Related plants have similar characteristics, and they often have similar uses. Rather than learning new plants one-at-a-time, it is possible to learn them by the hundreds, based on plant family patterns.

"Botany in a Day truly has the potential to become one of the most useful botany and herbal primers ever written."
--Peter Gail, Ph.D.
"Botany in a Day has my highest recommendation for anyone--beginner or expert-- interested in plants. Herbalists, naturalists, gardeners, and especially those involved in teaching outdoor and survival skills will wonder how they ever managed without this superb book."
--Susun S. Weed, Director
"Botany in a Day is exactly what I needed for my botany classes. It goes beyond what is available in the standard field key, providing a wealth of information on individual families. Now my students are able to key local flora confidently, knowing they have reached the correct family by referring to Botany in a Day's detailed descriptions and pictures. They can become truly acquainted with the family's characteristics, constituents, medicinal uses, and patterns. I personally love all the stories about the edible plants, which describe in delicious detail how long it takes to collect and prepare each one."
