This compact guide includes most East Coast seaside plant species found between Plum Island, Massachusetts and western Louisiana, exclusive of southern Florida. Its 588 color photographs, clear line figures, and concise text allow users to identify plants easily. Annotated line drawings that precede the outstanding glossary are very useful. The identificaiton keys may help, but flowers are needed. In comparison, R.W. Tiner's A Field Guide to Coastal Wetland Plants of the Northeastern United States ( LJ 2/1/87), covers wetland plants from Maine to northern Florida, and does not include beach and dune plants, so presents only 280 species, but its excellent indented keys work well with or without flowers.Annette Aiello, Smithsonian Tropical Research Inst., Panama
