Very useful info.
As a medical professor, I love this waterproof folding guide to 20 medicinal wildflowers, trees & shrubs sorted by ailment or effect medicated (by infusion, decoction, poultice, etc.). Vivid illustrations of plants and their parts as found in 3 eastern woodland biomes. A 4x8x0.06" treasure trove that easily fits your pocket or knapsack.
Very informative especially covered things in my region
