9780807134078: Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain: A Field Guide

Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain provides detailed information on 535 species of herbaceous plants, vines, and shrubs inhabiting one of the great floristic provinces of the United States. The coastal plain extends from southeast Texas eastward to Florida and includes the Mississippi River flood plain, which stretches from southern Illinois to the Gulf of Mexico. It embraces all but the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and proceeds up the eastern seaboard into southern New Jersey and includes parts of Long Island and Cape Cod. In this indispensable guide, botanist Ray Neyland catalogs the native flora, as well as the naturalized species found throughout the far-flung but unified coastal plain.
Each illuminating entry includes a vivid color photograph of the wildflower in its natural setting, the plant's scientific and common names, and a precise description of the species, including its range and blooming time. Some entries describe modern and historical applications for the plants -- such as use by Native Americans for food or medicine -- and mention closely related species to prevent confusion in identification. The volume's simplified glossary and a series of line drawings explain essential botanical terms. Dichotomous keys facilitate a helpful step-by-step identification method, allowing readers to begin with what they know -- a flower's color -- and then follow a process of elimination (Is the plant aquatic or not? Are the leaves fan shaped or linear?).
A sturdy, flexible cover makes this guide the perfect companion on outdoor excursions. With its beautiful color photographs, instructive descriptions, and wide-ranging geographic scope, Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain is an integral reference for every nature lover.
