"This will be considered the most complete flora ever written for any place in the U.S. They have meticulously and accurately brought the status of vascular plants in the Chicago region up-to-date, while painstakingly recording an incredible array of interactions between the flora and other organisms, especially insects. The intricate pollination of some plants, many of these associations not previously known or recorded, is almost beyond belief." - Robert H. Mohlenbrock, Distinguished professor emeritus, SIU Carbondale
"The scholarship is off the scale!" - Bill N. McKnight
This tome substantially supercedes the 4th edition of the now out-of-print Plants of the Chicago Region (Swink & Wilhelm, 1994).
