Catkin-bearing plants comprise an important group of trees and shrubs in British Columbia. The willows, poplars, birches, alders and other plants that produce catkins can be found almost everywhere in the province, often dominating the moister plant communities. This book describes all 67 species found in BC. Each description includes a distribution map and finely detailed illustrations by the author, an accomplished botanical illustrator. It also includes diagnostic keys.
