Mexican Plant Guide

Anyone know of a good guide to the plants of Mexico? More specifically the state of Michoacan, just west of Mexico City.

Thanks!

I'm looking too, but thought I would tell you about a hike my family took in Cuitzeo, Michoacan in March, 2006. We hiked with a big group of Mexican friends, from a small village near Cuitzeo, up to the top of the nearby mountain. All the way up, our friend Felix was telling us what each plant was, and what it could be used for.

It was too much info, too fast, so of course we remembered very little later, plus the fact that it was all in spanish. The best part is that we can go back and do it again. Having a plant guide would help alot.

You can see some of the photos of that hike. Start here:
