Bark is more than just an important feature of a tree’s morphology and identification, it is part of its natural beauty. In Conifers Around the World, there is a selection of 648 characteristic bark photos: 72 pages with 9 images on each page, enough to include for each arboreal taxa discussed in this work one photo (or sometimse two, rarely three, images) of a typical bark as seen in the most typical habitats. Extremes may be included for some taxa to show their variability or weathering related to their climate and/or habitat.
