In addition , a list of references used in preparing this book and a glossary of technical terms are provided.

Review:

"An excellent and welcome addition to the library of anyone dealing with coastal wetlands plants from Maine through Maryland; it is also applicable in the general region from Canada to Northern Florida."―Rhodora

"A delight to read and a pleasure to use. . . . Whether you are a botanist, a wetland ecologist, or someone with an interest in wetland plants, this useful and attractive book should be on your bookshelf."―Science Books and Films

"A useful reference for nontechnical lay people and specialist alike."―Quarterly Review of Biology

"Tiner has assembled descriptions and line drawings of 150 vascular plants common in coastal habitats, including rocky shores, tidal flats, salt marshes, brackish marshes, tidal fresh marshes, tidal swamps, and coastal aquatic beds. An additional 130 species are referred to briefly. . . . The book is very suitable for its intended audience of 'nontechnical' persons interested in coastal habitats such as conservation commissioners, environmental consultants, and students in botany, ecology, and environmental science. Inclusion of maps and descriptions of places with good public access to observe coastal wetlands is very valuable."―Choice

"The only text of its kind. . . . Recommended for all coastal enthusiasts and will be an excellent guide for visits to any coastal site in the area of coverage."―Wildlife Review
