I could not find any book reviews of 'A California Flora' by
Philip Munz, which was not suprising, as the book appears to have
been written in 1968, with a reprint in 1973. I also found that
he wrote several other books specific to California. Here is
what I have on Philip Munz. You should be able to order
any of these at your local library through the inter-library
loan system, by using the OCLC or LCCN numbers. I am not sure
what the ALT number is for, but have included it anyway.
