The Flora and Fauna of the Pacific Northwest Coast

The Flora and Fauna of the Pacific Northwest Coast is an extensive, easy-to-follow resource guide to the plant and animal life of the vast and diverse bioregion stretching from Juneau, Alaska, south to coastal British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and down to California's San Francisco Bay. Encompassing over eight hundred native and invasive species, and including more than two thousand color photos, this is the most complete book of its kind on the market. The book is divided into flora and fauna, with detailed subsections for flowering plants, berries, ferns, shrubs and bushes, trees, fungi, birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and insects. Each species (identified by common and scientific name) is illustrated by a close-up photograph and a concise description of its appearance, biology, and habitat, as well as its traditional use and medicinal properties (where applicable). The book also contains detailed maps, a glossary, and a complete index of species.

About the Author

Collin Varner is a horticulturist and arboriculturalist, and the head of the Horticulture Department at the University of British Columbia. He is also a keen hiker, photographer, and illustrator who spends much of his time scouring the coastal forests of Cascadia, examining, photographing, and drawing the flora and fauna. He lives in Vancouver, BC.


"As practical as it is impressive in its scope, The Flora and Fauna of the Pacific Northwest Coast describes many of the common plants, animals, and fungi that endow the rich coastal ecosystems of Cascadia. 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
