About this book

Thousands of nonnative plants have been introduced into Florida, many of great benefit. However, some have become established in expanding populations within native plant communities where they threaten natural processes.

The author identify 117 nonnative plant species that occur in natural areas and provide an extensive literature review of each species. This field guide, designed to assist natural area managers in recognizing nonnative and invasive plant species on lands that they manage will be of use to naturalists, horticulturists, landscapers, and gardeners. Complimented by over 300 photographs, the descriptions provide plant identification characteristics, plus details on their ecological significance, distribution, and life history.

The second edition combines information from the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (FLEPPC) List of Invasive Species and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Invasive Plants Working Group's Assessment of Nonnative Plants in Florida's Natural Areas.
