Invasive Flora of the West Coast

British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest

A compact, full-colour field guide to the growing number of invasive plant species spreading across coastal BC and the Pacific Northwest, highlighting their hazards and uses.

The spread of invasive plant species is a growing concern across the coastal Pacific Northwest. Invasive plants compete for space with native plants, alter the natural habitat, and even interfere with the diet of local wildlife. Hundreds of these species are so commonly seen in our backyards, forests, and roadsides, that many people do not even realize that these plants are not native to this region.

Designed for amateur naturalists, gardeners, and foragers, Invasive Flora of the West Coast is a clear, concise, full-colour guide to identifying and demystifying more than 200 invasive plant species in our midst, from Scotch broom to Evening Primrose. Featuring colour photography, origin and etymology, safety tips and warnings, as well as common uses, this book is practical, user-friendly, and portable for easy, on-the-go identification.
