About this book

Provides a guide to over 275 common and/or noteworthy flowering plants of the Texas beaches and islands of the Rio Grande to the Louisiana border. Each plant is illustrated by a colour photograph, accompanied by a description of its appearance, habitat, and blooming time. The plants are grouped by families, which in turn are arranged according to relationships and similarities for easy reference.

"This is definitely the book I've wished I had on visits to the coast! [...] Beachcombers, naturalists (amateur and professional), some fishermen, students, cottage owners, and perhaps especially birders will want this book."
- Tom Wendt, Curator, Plant Resources Center, University of Texas at Austin
