A newly updated, expanded edition of the spectacular bestselling field guide to the plants and animals of the North America's Northwest Coast.

“A must have for any naturalist in the region.”—Douglas Justice, Associate Director, Horticulture & Collections, UBC Botanical Garden

With its temperate climate and rich biodiversity, the coastal Pacific Northwest is an ideal environment for nature lovers of all sorts. Stretching from Juneau, Alaska, south to coastal British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and all the way down to California's San Francisco Bay, this vast region is home to an incredibly rich variety of flora and fauna.

Packed with over 1,500 photographs and essential information about more than 900 commonly found plant and animal species across the region, this second edition of The Flora and Fauna of Coastal British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest is a colourful, concise, easy-to-follow resource guide. Accessible for anyone with an interest in nature—from amateur arborists to avid gardeners, from weekend hikers to experienced beachcombers—this book provides an essential overview of the region's trees, shrubs, bushes, flowering plants, berries, ferns, fungi, marine plants, marine and land mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and insects.

With expanded flora and fauna sections; revised species organization; and new information about at-risk species, toxicity, edibility, and traditional uses, this book is an essential guide to the abundance of nature in this beautiful part of the world.

Collin Varner is a horticulturalist/arboriculturalist. He began his career at the University of British Columbia's Botanical Garden, and over the next forty years assumed responsibility for conserving 25,000 trees across the Point Grey campus and taught courses in native plant studies. Now retired, Varner is an avid photographer, world traveller, and the bestselling author of The Flora and Fauna of Coastal British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest and Edible and Medicinal Flora of the West Coast.

“As practical as it is impressive in its scope, The Flora and Fauna of Coastal British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest successfully describes many of the common plants, animals, and fungi that endow the rich coastal ecosystems of Cascadia. Collin Varner adds this biological tour de force to his already impressive list of excellent field guides. Well organized, concise, and beautifully illustrated with many of the author's own photographs, this is a must have for any naturalist in the region.” 

Douglas Justice, Associate Director, Horticulture & Collections, UBC Botanical Garden

 

“It takes a book like The Flora and Fauna of Coastal British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest by Collin Varner to really drive home the variety of life we have in our part of the world.” 

Richmond News

 

Praise for Edible and Medicinal Flora of the West Coast

 

“Edible and Medicinal Flora of the West Coast is both a good read and, as a handy field guide, a keeper. The reader may dip into the book for specific safe foraging information—and will be drawn back to find out more.”
