Описание: Covering both wild and planted toxic plants found in the North American continent north of the Tropic of Cancer, this work addresses animal and human intoxications with critical information like plant morphology and distribution, clinical signs and pathologic changes of toxicity, and treatment.

Geography of North America - North America is the third largest continent with an estimated population of around 460 million . Bees and toxic chemicals - Bees can suffer serious effects from toxic chemicals in their environment.

Geography of North America - North America is the third largest continent with an estimated population of around 460 million, ca. 24,346,000 km² (9,400,000 square miles), (if Eurasia is excluded), and the northern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere.

This user-friendly handbook on plants poisonous to animals has been written and organized to serve the needs of veterinarians, livestock owners, and students. Authors Burrows and Tyrl combine the insights of a veterinary toxicologist with that of a botanist and taxonomist to provide a quick reference for individuals who deal daily with livestock or companion animals in natural settings where plant poisoning may occur.

The authors have previously been acclaimed for providing easy accessibility to information in their comprehensive 2001 reference work Toxic Plants of North America that was quickly established as the gold-standard book for those requiring information on plants poisonous to animals and humans on the North American continent.

Now, to satisfy the needs of veterinary clinicians, ranchers, farmers, animal scientists, toxicologists, and other diagnosticians, Burrows and Tyrl have organized this handbook by body system affected, then subdivided by clinical manifestations. Each chapter begins with a table of the plants affecting a given system, e.g., plants affecting the liver and causing necrosis. The table lists those plants and comments briefly on the salient signs. It also includes plants that would produce the same effect but will be detailed in other chapters. For each plant, signs, pathology, treatment, and problems and causes are discussed followed by general information on the plant, keys to identification of that plant, illustrations, and location maps.

Book just as advertised. Great resource.

Toxic Plants of North America is a grandiose work, fruit of many years of intense labor, as one can confirm just by leafing through its hunderds of pages. More than just an academic resource work, this treatise is one of the very few that can actually be used as a textbook for a course on poisonous plants.
Burrows and Tyrl's book is one of the most ambitious projects ever to be undertaken about North American toxic flora since 1964. Indeed a newer source of information was long overdue.
The book has also many salient features including its clarity, objectivity and a usually neglected feature in other publications, which is the inclusion of pertinent information about poisonous plants of Mexico.
I highly recommend this book as a text for courses dealing with poisonous plants offered by Universities in their colleges of Animal Science, Range Ecology and Veterinary Medicine.
Toxic Plants of North America is destined to be a definitive work on the subject.
