Keep in mind, it is not possible for one single resource to cover every plant/tree that there is. To quote the book at the start of Appendix 1, "The Plant Species Matrix can help you analuze and asses the niches of 626 useful and functional plants."
I looked at the chart in volume 2 that starts on page 468. It appears to cover a range of vegetation for USDA hardiness zones 2 - 10. There seems to be a little more vegetation listed for temperate climates (zones 4-7), but there are things listed for the entire range mentioned.

I have been looking for this type information but applicable to our area as we are in the planning stages of putting in food forest.
