About this book

A handy illustrated guide to 125 wildflowers, grasses, trees, and other plants of the Atlantic coast This beautifully illustrated book introduces readers to 125 frequently encountered wildflowers and other plants that grow in coastal habitats from Massachusetts to central Florida. Drawn from the authors' many years studying, photographing, and teaching about plants and their habitats, this handy guide will appeal to everyone from the budding naturalist out to enjoy a day at the beach to the professional scientist seeking accurate, current information. Organized by plant family, the guide provides the scientific and common names for each species, notes about range and habitat, and a detailed botanical description that includes information about growth habits and life history, flowers and fruits, human uses, and importance to wildlife. Color photographs accompany each entry. Other features include a section on planning field trips, a glossary, and a list of selected natural areas to visit: 177 sites in 12 states.
