About this book

This manual is the collaborative effort of fifteen botanists from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and other organizations around the state. This publication was made possible by a grant to the FDEP from the Florida legislature, with additional funding provided by UF/IFAS. The beauty and diversity of Florida's wetlands are revealed with over 800 colour photographs and over 1000 illustrations, treating over 1000 plant species that are important in the identification of wetlands in Florida.

This book is colour coded into 4 sections, with 18 pages of ferns, 7 pages of gymnosperms (pines), 191 pages of monocotyledons, and 363 pages of dicotyledons. Alphabetical arrangement of each section by family and genus along with a glossary of scientific and common names allow easy location of genera. The manual provides descriptions of plants, their habitats and associated plant communities along with their ecological responses within Florida. A distribution map and a vegetative index are also included as is field identification between commonly confused plants. This book is comprehensive enough for the taxonomic needs of field botanists yet with its many beautiful photographs and detailed line drawings is appropriate for amateur plants enthusiasts.
