About this book

Expanded and updated, this volume is an indispensable reference to the highly diverse flora of the state. Both popular and comprehensive, the third edition contains updated nomenclature and the inclusion of more than 100 additional species, making it the most inclusive identification manual to the more than 4200 taxa native to or naturalized in Florida.

Wunderlin brings us light-years toward an understanding of what we have and what we had in the state. He also shows us what we stand to lose to exotic species invasion, urbanization, and similar impacts of modern civilization.
