Common Poisonous Plants and Mushrooms of North America by Nancy Turner and Adam Szczawinski
There are really no alternatives currently in print to this book. Turner and Szczawinski are ethnobotanists who have written extensively on edible wild plants. And while they are not toxicologists, they have done an excellent job of putting together technical, academic, and medical information about North American poisonous plants, mushrooms, sea vegetables, and more.

Their unique contributions in writing this book include an understanding of the edible aspects of some poisonous plants and the bonus of their full color plant photography. This book should be used as a safeguard to any new plant you read about and want to try. If an edible plant has any poisonous parts, you should know what they are, where they are, and how to avoid being poisoned by them. Keep in mind that the importance of this book is as a toxicological guide, not a field guide to identifying poisonous plants (even though identification is just as important). This is an essential book for any serious wild food library.
