The State Department of Agriculture called upon a trio of the state's finest botanists and weed control specialists to create an anthology of California's native and alien weed species, with the intent to enable its average resident to identify the plants swarming the land beneath them. This informative publication includes countless photos and illustrations, with simplified descriptions, favoring everyday language over complex technical terms as the state aimed to disperse useful, simplified information on how we could identify and deal with California's overgrowths.
