Resources

Over the years at Jarowair, we would have been lost without our ever growing list of identification resources, both in book form and online. We refer to these books often have them all close at hand.  However when these resources haven't provided an answer, we have been lucky enough to have a wide network of experts who have been willing to lend a hand with identification of everything flora and fauna.
Below is a list of the resources that we use on a regular basis and find invaluable.  Some of these books are quite old, but still very informative - I have picked up some from second-hand book shops along with ebay.
