The North American Guide to Common PoisonousPlants and Mushrooms - Gardening
by Nancy J. Turner &
Patrick von Aderkas

An essential reference for parents, gardeners or outdoor enthusiasts, this book helps identify over 300 toxic plants and mushrooms, covering not only wild species, but a remarkable number of harmful houseplants as well. The authors, one an ethnobotanist, the other a biologist, draw on extensive scientific knowledge, presenting it in a clear, practical format so you can find the information quickly.

Each entry includes full-color photos and a brief description for fast identification; more details of physical characteristics, range and habitat are also given. Notes on toxicity list the hazardous compounds, their symptoms, and possible effects. Aside from its great value in helping prevent poisoning, the book is a fascinating read, covering a surprisingly little-known facet of the natural world.

Hardcover, 6" x 9", 375 pages, 2009 edition (previously published as Common Poisonous Plants and Mushrooms of North America).
