Focusing on the North American continent, this book, the first of its kind, identifies and describes major field guides in all scientific subject areas (from plants, animals, and insects to astronomy and weather, geology and fossils, and man-made objects). Organized by topic, it offers complete bibliographic information and descriptions of more than 1,300 field guides. This permits users to quickly and easily discover whether a guide is available for a particular subject and determine its scope and format. Invaluable as a ready reference and collection development tool, this
