A flora of southern Illinois by Robert H Mohlenbrock( )

17 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will be of particular interest to those interested in applied fields of biology, such as conservation, forestry, and wild life. The southern twelve counties of Illinois, a total of 4,355 square miles, comprise the area covered in this book. It is an area in which both northern and southern flora specimens abound. A wide variety of plant species grow in this area, and nearly 200 new plants not formerly identified with this area have been included in the listings. Especially valuable to amateur botanists, the book is an important manual in identifying the plants that make up the native scenery of this region. Seventy-seven illustrations aid in identifying and understanding the plant communities
Flowering plants: flowering rush to rushes by Robert H Mohlenbrock( )

12 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of Flowering Plants: Flowering Rush to Rushes offers new material, including a preface, seventeen new illustrations of the additional species now known from Illinois, a revised list of illustrations, and an appendix of the additions and changes since 1970 in the identification, classification, and location of the plants included in the first edition. This new edition of the first volume in the multi-volume series of The Illustrated Flora of Illinois- which provides a working reference for the identification and classification of these plant forms in the state- includes flowering rushes, arrowheads, pondweeds, naiads, duckweeds, cattails, bur reeds, spiderworts, and rushes. In his introduction, Robert H. Mohlenbrock defines terms and procedures used in the identification and classification of this group of flowering plants referred to as monocotyledons- plants that produce upon germination a single cotyledon or seed-leaf and are often identified by their tall, slender, grass-like leaves. He outlines the life histories and morphologies of the representative monocots and illustrates the plants' habits and frequencies in Illinois. Geared to the amateur as well as the professional botanist, the volume includes a glossary of definitions and identification keys to classify the plants according to order, family, genus, and species. The identifying characteristics of each descending class are also given in detail. The morphology of each species is outlined along with data on frequency of occurrence, related soil and climate conditions, and history of past collections. Among the 125 illustrations are detailed sketches of the important features of each species and maps indicating the geographical locations of each species in Illinois
Sedges by Robert H Mohlenbrock( )

21 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in English and held by 1,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sedges: Carex is the fourteenth volume of the Illustrated Flora of Illinois series and the sixth and last volume devoted to monocots-plants that have a single seed leaf, or cotyledon, upon germination. Since the volume's original publication in 1999, thirty-four additional species of plants have been recognized in Illinois. Some are discoveries from recent field work, some are from more thorough searches of herbaria, and others are from different taxonomic philosophies. For each species of Carex in Illinois, there is a full illustration showing the habit of the p

Cyperaceae : Sedges by Robert H Mohlenbrock( )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 1,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first in a series of four illustrated guides identifying aquatic and standing water plants in the central Midwest, this convenient reference volume covers the 183 species of Cyperaceae. Robert H. Mohlenbrock includes three types of plants: sub-mergents, those that spend their entire lives with their vegetative parts either completely submerged or at least floating on the water's surface; emergents, which are typically rooted underwater with their vegetative parts standing out of water; and a third category of plants that live most of their lives out of water but that live in water at least three months a year. Mohlenbrock provides descriptions, illustrations, and ways to identify any plant in the sedge family (Cyperaceae) in the states of Kentucky (except for the Cumberland region), Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. With taxa arranged alphabetically, the volume is well organized and easy to use. In addition, basic synonymy, description, distribution, comments, and line drawings that show the habitats and distinguishing features for each plant. Habitat and nomenclatural notes are also listed, as are the official wetland designations given by the U.S."--NHBS Environment Bookstore
This land by Robert H Mohlenbrock( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part armchair travelogue, part guide book, this projected three-volume series--divided into the western, central, and eastern United States--will introduce readers to all 155 national forests across the country. This Land is the only comprehensive field guide that describes the natural features, wildernesses, scenic drives, campgrounds, and hiking trails of our national forests, many of which--while little known and sparsely visited--boast features as spectacular as those found in our national parks and monuments. Each entry includes logistical information about size and location, facilities, attractions, and associated wilderness areas. For about half of the forests, Robert H. Mohlenbrock has provided sidebars on the biological or geological highlights, drawn from the "This Land" column that he has written for Natural History magazine since 1984. Superbly illustrated with color photographs, botanical drawings, and maps, this book is loaded with information, clearly written, and easy to use

Acanthaceae to Myricaceae : water willows to wax myrtles by Robert H Mohlenbrock( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Veteran botanist, scientific author, and professor Robert H. Mohlenbrock brings the full depth of his expertise and scholarship to his latest book, "Acanthaceae to Myricaceae: Water Willows to Wax Myrtles", the third of four volumes in the "Aquatic and Standing Water Plants of the Central Midwest" series. This easy-to-use illustrated reference guide covers aquatic and standing water plants for the states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Kentucky (excluding the biologically distinct Cumberland Mountain region of eastern Kentucky), from spearmint to wintergreen, from aster to waterwort. The volume identifies, describes, and organizes species in three groups, including truly aquatic plants, which spend their entire life with their vegetative parts either completely submerged or floating on the water's surface; emergents, which are usually rooted under water with their vegetative parts standing above the water's surface; and wetland plants, which live most or all of their lives out of water, but which can live at least three months in water. Mohlenbrock lists the taxa alphabetically, and within each taxon, he describes the species with the scientific names, common names, identification criteria, line drawings, geographical distribution, habitat description, and official U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wetlands designation as described by the National Wetland Inventory Section in 1988"--NHBS Environment Bookstore

Where have all the wildflowers gone? : a region-by-region guide to threatened or endangered U.S. wildflowers by Robert H Mohlenbrock( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and German and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book attempts to provide an account of each kind of plant that has been placed on the federal list of endangered and threatened species, as well as those that have gone through the listing process except for the final listing. In addition, nearly sixty plants in the United States that are rare and are being reviewed by the United States Fish and Wildlife service are described in this book. Following an initial chapter that discusses one of this nation's extinct plants and the efforts now being made to prevent further extinction, there are seven chapters based on geographical regions in this country that include the discussions of the endangered and threatened plants. Those plants which have already been listed by the federal government are given first in each chapter, followed by those currently under review
