About this book

Travellers go to Florida for sun, sand, surf and visits to the state's world famous theme parks, but increasingly also to explore Florida's incredible natural attractions: stunning subtropical scenery, wonderful walking and bird-watching trails, exceptional fishing, boating, and canoeing, the wet wilderness of Everglades National Park, continental US's only coral reefs, and glimpses of exotic wildlife. This book has all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Florida's magnificent animal, plant, and sea life.

* Identifying, location, and conservation information on the most frequently sighted animals.
* Full-colour illustrations of more than 600 of Florida's most common insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and plants.
* Information on the underwater animals most snorkellers and divers actually see.
* Photos and information on Florida habitats and on the most common plants you will encounter.
* Brief descriptions of the region's most frequently visited parks and reserves.
* Easy-to-carry, entertainingly written, beautifully illustrated - you will want to have this book as constant companion on your journey.
