Interpretive Summary: Currently, there is no single book available for the identification of weeds in the central United States and Canada region. A book was written to include 356 of the most common and/or most troublesome weeds of the central United States and Canada. In addition to editing previously published write-ups, new weed descriptions were written and edited by the authors. This book will include the most comprehensive collection of color photographs (1420), distribution maps, grass illustrations, and glossary of terms for any weed identification manual currently available. The book is expected to be in print by the spring of 2010.
