Learning to identify unwanted plants around the home, farm, or ranch will be much easier with a book published by the Western Society of Weed Science and cosponsored by Cooperative Extension of the Western States. Weeds of the West is an extensive publication which can help you identify plants that compete with native plants, horticultural and agricultural crops as well as those that can poison livestock and people.
Weeds discussed in the book were selected by weed scientists who are members of the WSWS. Weeds were selected because of their abundance, ability to reproduce, compete, and spread rapidly, as well as those that are toxic to livestock or humans.
