Common names of plants are given in English, Spanish, and O’odham. At the same time as emphasizing scientific accuracy, the book is written in an accessible style. Felger’s observations and knowledge of plant ecology, geographic distribution, evolution, ethnobotany, plant variation and special adaptations, and the history of the region provides botanists, naturalists, ecologists, conservationists, and someone else celebrating the desert with readable, interesting, and important information. With two of Mexico’s newest biosphere reserves—the Pinacate and the Upper Gulf of California—this region is a keystone for desert conservation efforts. Its location linking vast preserves to the north makes this book especially useful for someone interested in borderland studies and the Sonoran Desert. Flora of the Gran Desierto represents a most creative, definitive, and enthusiastic remedy of Sonoran Desert plant life and is highly relevant to ecological restoration in deserts and wetlands in arid places all over the world.
