Product Description:
Driving through Nevada, you may be miles from nowhere, but you are never far from an interesting rock, the shoreline of an ice age lake, or an active or historic mine. The Silver State has some of the most diverse geology in the United States, and much of it lies in plain sight thanks to the arid climate of the Great Basin. Geologic forces continue to shape Nevada, stretching it apart and bringing magma near the surface. Earthquakes periodically rock its lonely outposts, creating some of the biggest fault scarps in the world. With the help of Roadside Geology of Nevada, you can appreciate geologic features along more than thirty of Nevada’s highways.
Some of Nevada’s Geologic Highlights
Great Basin National Park’s limestone caverns
Virginia City and the Comstock Lode
Tule Springs Fossil Beds
Valley of Fire’s bright red rock
Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park’s fossil reptiles
Lake Tahoe’s granitic eastern shore
Pyramid Lake’s tufa towers
Ruby Mountains’ glacially carved Lamoille Canyon
Red Rock Canyon’s Jurassic sandstone
Alamo’s extraterrestrial impact
Virgin Valley’s fossils and opal
Cathedral Gorge’s lakebed badlands
Frenchman Mountain’s Great Unconformity

  • Field Guide to the Grasses Sedges and Rushes of the United States
Product Description:

With its clear, easy-to-use format, accurate line drawings, and concise descriptions, Edward Knobel's Field Guide can help make you an expert at identifying the common grasses, sedges, and rushes of the United States. Over 370 of the most common species are accurately described in this handy volume: varieties of timothy, rye, foxtail, fescue, bluegrass, nutrush, cottongrass, bulrush, etc. Knobel's emphasis is upon wild varieties of these plants common to the eastern and central United States, but many cultivated strains and food grains such as rice, oats, and maize are also included.
A general key on the first page of this book allows you to fit each plant into one of several basic structural categories. Further subdivisions, classified according to the structure of the ear and spikelet (the flowering part of the plant) identify the particular species. Each plant is then described according to common name, Latin name, height, color of flower and stem, texture, smell (if applicable), habitat, and even edibility. Close resemblances to other varieties are also noted, which helps to make identifications even easier. Each description is also accompanied by a drawing of an entire plant, and a second drawing of the actual spikelet (with scale of the drawing noted). The author includes a total of 28 plates and over 600 line drawings.
This new Dover edition has been completely revised, with common and scientific nomenclature updated, by Mildred E. Faust, Professor of Botany, Emeritus, Syracuse University.
