A Colour Atlas of Poisonous Plants
by: Pfander, Frohne

Garden flowers, ornamental shrubs, and houseplants—as well as common species in the wild—can all contain substances poisonous to humans or animals. In fact, after medicines and household chemicals, toxic plants rank third in causes of calls to poison control hotlines. Non-native plants, both temperate and tropical, can be found in many domestic environments. This volume identifies potentially dangerous plants, giving comprehensive information on their distribution, kind and degree of toxicity, symptoms of their poisoning, and suggested treatment. Illustrations, both actual scale and enlarged representations of recognizable features, make each plant identifiable. Separate sections discuss the significant toxins found in plants, and the problems they cause, list plants of special concern to veterinarians, and present identification tables for berries and leaves. This practical reference, with updated glossary, index, and bibliography will be valued by a wide range of medical, veterinary, pharmacological, and botanical professionals for years to come. 292 pgs.

Complete Illustrated Guide To Everything Sold In Garden Centers
by: Ettlinger, Steve

Just as the title says, it's all here in this volume, a valuable addition to the gardener's bookshelf. Over 600 entries. Part I covers garden supplies; Part II tools, equipment and accessories. Soil mixes, gardening tools, pesticides, ornamental plaster statues of saints--each receives the same reasoned consideration in frank, easily understandable terms. Every item inspires entries detailing how to recognize and use it and how much to pay for it. Yet what can be most confusing for gardeners, particularly novices, is the welter of brand and common names often employed for gardening merchandise, & the author helps clear it up by listing synonymous terms wherever applicable. And when it's cheaper to concoct, say, a soilless mix than to buy it, the author isn't bashful about telling how. Although the title makes an exception of plants, an appendix contains a simplified yet user-friendly buying guide to the "greengoods" sold at garden centers. Other appendixes list items for gardeners "who have difficulty gripping, bending, kneeling, reaching, or are confined to wheelchairs"; information sources; and mail-order catalogues. 288 line drawings. 368 pgs.
