About this book

With almost a quarter of its acreage covered by water, South Carolina is a small state distinguished by biological diversity and an extensive range of habitats. Underscoring the fact that the state's streams, rivers, lakes, swamps, marshes and estuaries form a single, interrelated system, Pete Laurie and David Chamberlain explore the particular wetland habitats in each of South Carolina's 5 physiographic regions. They describe habitats as varied as waterfalls, blackwater swamps, and tidal creeks and as distinctive as Carolina Bays.
