Woodland Carex of the Upper Midwest

A mysterious group of plants that look like grasses, but have triangular and not round stems, are the entire subject of this book, but includes only the species of Carex that grow in woodlands in the Upper Midwest. Botanists and naturalists will enjoy it, though, as Linda Curtis shows us through her camera eye the diverse textures and designs these plants lend to the woody landscape, although they will never shout with bright colors. We see also, through Linda’s illustrations, a humorous side showing the difficulties of “getting the shot.”   Plates     Woodland Carex Review      Humorous Review
