A companion to Symonds' Tree Identification book, this book has the more challenging task of providing detailed identification keys for the more numerous shrubs of the central/ northeastern US and Ontario. Black and white, mostly actual size photos are provided for the following keys: Thorns/prickles etc, Leaves, Flowers, Fruit, Twigs, and Bark. The second half of the book then brings it all together by species in its Master Pages. This is truly a definitive reference for the serious field naturalist.
