Japan Book of the Week


Wild Flowers of Japan Posted by HelloThe deliciously named Ran Levy ("ran"in Japanese means orchid) has put together a book that is an excellent guide to the amazing variety of wild flowers in the Japanese archipeligo. The text is nicely arranged and very easy-to-use. Beautfiul color photos and group keys help even the least knowledgable easily identify many different floral species. Japan, which ranges in habitat and climate from subarctic to subtropical, is home to a diverse flora. Wild Flowers of Japan introduces the reader to hundreds of species in an easy to understand format. There are also identification keys and detailed background information. At the beginning of the
text is an illustrated shape-and-color key, at the end a comprehensive
index. Also helpful is a list of terms in both Japanese and English.
