Trees and Shrubs of British Columbia is the definitive guide to woody plants in the province. Dr T.C. Brayshaw describes all known species native or naturalized to BC. He accompanies each with comparative illustrations showing details of woody parts, leaves, flowers and fruit. These and the diagnostic keys will help you identify any tree or shrub in BC. A section of colour photographs show general features, variation and habitat.
Dr T.C. Brayshaw worked for many years as curator of botany at the Royal BC Museum, then in his retirement as curator emeritus, when he wrote many of his books on botany, including this one. All of his books feature his precisely rendered botanical drawings. He is now truly retired, though still involved in botanical and conservation matters in Victoria.
