The Magnificent Mesquite (Corrie Herring Hooks Series, No 46)
by Ken E. Rogers
Once little known outside the region, the mesquite is the iconic tree of the southwestern United States. Thanks to the rising popularity of mesquite charcoal, the tree--or at least its scent--has become known around the world. In recent years, too, the mesquite has been introduced into alien environments, sometimes as an effective means of combating desertification, but sometimes with the loss of native vegetation in competition against the ever thirsty tree. Ken Rogers, an ecologist with the Texas Forest Service, offers a handy almanac of all matters related to Prosopis, a genus that probably originated not in the Southwest but on the plains of Argentina, where 34 of the known 44 species of the tree are found. His text, supported by photographs and range maps, provides notes on the mesquite's life history, distribution, and economic importance worldwide. That importance, Rogers believes, will increase, thanks to the mesquite's ability to grow on marginal arid lands and to provide a range of wood products (including highly durable furniture, timber, and flooring), fodder for livestock, and easily renewable organic matter for fuel and chemical processes. Rogers's book makes a useful and appreciative reference, providing answers to any mesquite-related question a reader is likely to have. --Gregory McNamee -

The National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees : Eastern Region (Eastern)
by Elbert Luther Little, et al
For the untrained observer, it can be quite a challenge to sort out the many trees that make up a stand of older forest in, say, New England or the Ozarks. This well-illustrated guidebook, covering 364 species, comes to the rescue with photographs organized in several ways: by, for example, the shape of the leaf or needle, by the fruit, by the flower or cone, and by autumn coloration. Following one visible characteristic or another, the reader can narrow the range of possibilities, then turn to an informative text that describes a tree's physical characteristics, habitat, and range. Many of the species covered are relatively rare, such as the "stinking cedar" of the Georgia-Florida border; others are locally abundant, such as the paper birch of the boreal forest, used to make ice-cream sticks; still others, such as the smooth sumac, are widespread. The guidebook also covers ornamentals introduced from other continents, such as the Chinese privet and Mahaleb cherry. --Gregory McNamee -
