About the Book:

This unique natural history field guide is a full color, richly illustrated book, designed to be user friendly and non-technical. The Tug Hill region of New York State extends from Lake Ontario to the Adirondacks and this guide covers the natural communities of plants, birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and even insects found in the region.

Sample Two-Page Spread Showing Birds, Mammals, and Insects of the Successional Forest Plant Community

The book is divided into four parts: an introduction containing general information about the region, uplands, lowlands, and an appendix. Each of the ten chapters covers a prevalent plant community and consists of a narrative, illustrations, and Facts, Tips, and Lore - a potpourri of interesting facts and information on species likely to be found in the plant community. There is a color-coded edge band and symbol key for quick guidance to the contents. The appendix includes a species list and bibliography.
