Morgan Morrigan. Absolutely required if you are gonna forage out west. Almost all the other id books are written for the rockies and east coast. Is ideal for deciding which weeds are tools and food, and which weeds are chop n drop.
Bill Puckett. I have a copy of this from the local library on my window sill. Very quick read.
I don't know enough to judge it's accuracy, but I will be downloading a copy if I don't win one. Great reference.
Mary Jane Thompson. I own this book and for foraging and medicinal wild herb picking it is the most valuable book I own. Learning to identify plants is made so much easier with this book. I highly recommend it for learning.
Thomas Elpel. Thnaks for all the kind comments!

I like I give botany in a day 9 out of 10 acorns This book is the bees knees of plant Id books! Being able to key out a mystery plant in your garden is vital if you are trying to be selective in what "weeds" you chop to drop and which ones to eat in your garden.
Or if you are a seed junkie like me you'll need it when you can't identify the bizarro plant that decided to grow months after going wild with the seeding of weird things. My good friend did a weed walk with this in hand and after she demonstrated the keying of plants I wondered why I hadn't had one years ago. It teaches as you use it, making identification easy on future forays- just knowing how to identify the poisonous family of plants can help you to eat like a king on an unexpected trip into the wild.
Erica Daly. I have been testing some items with my chickens , so far if they eat it and don't spit it out, I try it. I have been eating lambs quarters, sorrel, dandelion, etc from my yard , but want to take foraging to the next step. I spend hours trying to look things up, and sometimes I can't see 'the forest through the trees ' in the pictures.
Eva - Thanks for the apples! I'll have to work on the field guide size!
Erica - Chickens and other species have vastly different digestive systems than we do. People foods can be poisonous to animals, and animal foods can be poisonous to us. If you are going to experiment with unknown plants, please start by learning some family patterns, so that you can at least elminate the most poisonous plants: Elpel http: Michael Newby.
I give this book 8 out of 10 acorns. First off let me say that this book is a great resource, what a great way to use pattern recognition for identification of plants. I won this book thanks to being on Paul's email list and have really enjoyed learning a new method for identification. This book opens your eyes mind to the fact that there is a pattern to what plants grow with what characteristics and once you understand that pattern identifying unknown plants becomes much easier.
Overall an amazing book that I would recommend anyone interested in our natural world add to their collection. Amber Fauson.
I love how Botany in A Day makes plant identification fun and accessible. Pattern recognition is a wonderful way to introduce people to botany. And I love that the newer edition has color pictures.
It's probably not the only book on botany that you should have though. And don't expect to actually be able to learn botany in just one day.
