This is the latest in our award-winning series of full color field guides to the Great Smoky Mountains. It covers every species of fern and fern ally (club moss, ground cedar, etc.) in the Smoky Mountain area. Each species gets its own page with at least one color photo and secondary illustration or close-up image. Many species include ultra high resolution sori scans compliments the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory. The text is by Dr. Murray Evans, former University of Tennessee professor, Wildflower Pilgrimage leader, and one of the world's leading authorities on ferns.
