The field guide is provided as a PDF file (Adobe Reader 8.0 or higher required). This PDF contains thumbnails, bookmarks, and a hot-linked table of contents. The guidebook can be printed on standard 8½" x 11" printers. In March 2001, Robert Zatkin and Mike Diggles revised the book that was used on the trip the previous May. This new version contains 222 pages including six color sheets.
The print-version of the field guide is 169.4 MB. That used to be considered "large" but we've now (2010) put it online here. It will take people with slow connections a long time to download so if you want, contact Mike Diggles (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will put a copy on a CD-ROM and mail it to you. Also contact Mike if you want a paper copy.
We also made a screen version (low resolution) with high compression (low-quality) for online viewing. View the 72-dpi PGS Big Sur Field Guide (PGS-Big_Sur_field_guide72.pdf, 12.8 MB).
