A definitive reference. This is the most comprehensive manual and illustrated guide to native and naturalized vascular plants - ferns, conifers, and flowering plants - growing in aquatic and wetland habitats in northeastern North America, from Newfoundland west to Minnesota and south to Virginia and Missouri. This work completely revises and greatly expands Norman Fassett's 1940 classic "A Manual of Aquatic Plants", yet retains the features that made Fassett's book so useful. Wetland ecologists, botanists, resource managers, public naturalists, and environmentalists concerned with the preservation of wetland areas, which are increasingly threatened, will welcome this clear, workable, and comprehensive guide.
