The major sections are: Plant identification
characteristics (taxonomic key, plant illustrations and color
photos); functions of plant parts; disease problems; insect
problems and other animal pests; physiological disorders; chemical
injury; troubleshooting plant problems; ornamental plant problems
key (diagnostic key with plants listed alphabetically by common
nameslatin genus and species and common name are cross
referenced both ways in the Botanical Name Index and the Common
Name Index in the back of the book) with color photo illustrations
of common symptoms; and, avoiding and solving plant problems.
There are two appendices: Appendix A, Plant Recommendations Based
on Susceptibility to Problems; Appendix B, Plant Recommendations
for Specific Problems.
The Plant Problem Key and accurate

This is one of the most useful books for assistance in diagnosing
MANUAL OF WOODY LANDSCAPE PLANTS. (Their
identification, ornamental characteristics, culture, propagation,
and uses). Third edition, revised in 1983. Michael A. Dirr.
Published by Stipes Publishing Company, 10-12 Chester Street,
Champaign, IL 61820. This book does exactly what the title
indicates plus it indicates the more prevalent problems that might
occur with each plant species and cultivar such as insect and
pathogen problems, cultural requirements (i.e. pH, soil moisture,
etc). It supplies valuable information on identifying
characteristics of a range of cultivars of each species so the
diagnostician can determine if the plants appearance is
normal for that cultivar. The information on propagation and
culture is also useful in diagnosing plant problems.
