    Rezensionen

    Michael Pollan, author of The Botany of Desire:

    "Though ostensibly a field guide, this book is much more than that; it offers a deep and wise reconsideration of our most cherished ideas about nature. You will never look at 'invasive species' the same way again."

    "This field guide is useful for trained ecologists, botanists, and naturalists, and is accessible to anyone else who wonders what is sprouting up from that sidewalk crack or in that corner of their suburban garden."

    Marilyn K. Alaimo, Chicago Botanic Garden:

    "Despite derisive labels for these plants, such as 'weedy' and 'invasive,' he contends that the public should have greater appreciation for plants that are able to contend with complex urban ecosystems."
