CANTON – Two plant scientists who have co-authored a book on local flora will sign copies of their work at St. Lawrence University’s Brewer Bookstore Saturday, June 12.

The book, published by Bloated Toe Press, is a result of nearly three decades of research conducted by the authors. It details over 1,300 plants occurring in St. Lawrence County including where and when to find them and how to tell the differences between species.

Eldblom is a retired librarian and field botanist from SUNY Potsdam, while Ms. Johnson is an active researcher in plant ecology.
