Sweeping from Toronto to Lake Huron and Lake Erie is a region of biological richness unmatched in Canada. Here the native trees have unusual names -- Sassafras, Cucumber Magnolia, Tulip-tree, Black Walnut, Pawpaw -- evoking the distinctly southern character for which the region is named.

The zone is also home to dozens of species of plants, grasses and wildflowers, as well as animals, birds, fishes and mussels, amphibians and reptiles, butterflies, dragonflies and other insects not found elsewhere in Canada.

The Carolinian region is only a quarter of a percent of the country's total land area, but close to one-third of Canada's rare and endangered plants and animals live here. So does more than a quarter of the country's population. Many unique species depend on the region's distinctive habitats, many of them also in jeopardy. The Carolinian landscape is one of the most threatened in North America.

This book is a labour of love for the contributors, naturalists and scientists who share their knowledge of the diverse richness and rarity of the species and spaces in Carolinian Canada through engaging and informative text.

Review:

"These folks know their material, and their prose paints pictures that enchant. ... your money will be well-spent. ... As I look back 25 years to when the Carolinian bug first bit me, I can only think how much a book such as this one would have helped." (Tom Atkinson The Blazing Star - Newsletter of the North American Native Plant Society 2008-07-01)

"The photographs are gorgeous." (Paul Nicholson London Free Press 2012-12-01)
