I am an artist working on weed drawings. Where I can find an image-to-Latin dictionary with weed names so I can identify what I am drawing?

I am an artist and I am working on weed drawings. I was wondering how I can find a image-to-Latin dictionary with weed names so I can identify what I am drawing?


You can consult the book Weeds of the Northeast, by Richard H. Uva, Joseph C. Neal, and Joseph M. DiTomaso, 1997, Comstock Publishing. The book contains photographs of more than 300 weed species, with detailed descriptions and their common and botanical names. The habit, seedling, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds of the species are all depicted.

We also have many books here in our LuEsther T. Mertz Library; the reference librarian can help with more sources Tuesday through Saturday after 12 noon, at 718-817-8604.

For tips on a variety of gardening topics, see our Plant Information Guides.
