Since the publication of the first edition more than thirty years ago, The Flora of Alberta has become the standard guide for naturalists, botanists, and all those interested in the wildlife of the province. It provides an inventory of 1775 known vascular plant species- ferns, conifers, and flowering plants - that are native to Alberta, or if non-native, that have become established and grow wild int he province. All are grouped according to genus and family, with descriptions of species, genera, and families. Keys are provided to allow for the identification of all the known species, along with information on habitats in which species generally occur. The text for each species includes the chromosome number and indicates the geographical distribution in North America. Also included are 1158 provincial distribution maps, showing the locations of native species, and two specially prepared maps of the province - one indicating the distribution of major soil groups, the other distribution of major vegetation types. In the years since its initial publication The Flora of Alberta has been revised, updated, and considerably expanded while retaining the original format and purpose that have made it indispensable to a wide range of readers.

Budd's Flora of the Prairie Provinces, first published in 1979 and revised and updated in 1987, is a field-oriented manual for the identification of all known plants occurring in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Volume 1 includes the region's ferns and fern allies, conifers, and monocots (e.g., grasses, sedges and rushes, lilies, orchids, etc.) The companion Volume 2 treats the dicots ("wildflowers"; see ISBN 1523348690). Each family, genus and species is keyed, followed by concise descriptions of each species' key features, habitat and general range in the region. Numerous line drawings by the authors and b/w photographs of herbarium specimens are included throughout the text. Although somewhat dated in terms of taxonomic nomenclature, the book's thoroughness (1,974 species in 590 genera and 118 families are described in the two volumes), easy-to-use keys, and clear descriptions make Budd's Flora a valuable resource for anyone studying the plant life of the region's prairies, wetlands, forests, and mountains. Primary author A. C. Budd (1889-1960) was a long-time student of Canada's prairie flora and Range Botanist with Agriculture Canada. This latest edition was updated by his colleagues J. Looman and K. F. Best.
