Comments: from Amazon.com Steyermark's Flora of Missouri is an account of Missouri's vascular flora, including the pteridophytes, gymnosperms, and flowering plants growing spontaneously in the state. Volume One contains treatments of 801 species of ferns, fern allies, conifers, and monocots. Users of the previous edition will note similarities in format, with keys to families, genera, species and infraspecific taxa, full-page plates of line drawings and county dot maps for each species. The revised edition, however, features all-new illustrations and simplified maps generated from a computerized database of specimens. The keys have been streamlined, and morphological descriptions have been added to the text. Taxonomic changes and additions are documented in a lengthy bibliography.
