Wetlands--lakes, rivers, marshes, swamps, bogs and fens--are an integral part of the Ontario landscape. They slow and sustain local water flow, and they contribute significantly to the diversity of life and ecosystems by providing habitat for plants, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and countless invertebrates. This handy field guide features detailed plant species descriptiosn combined with precise drawings and excellent colour photographs. Most of the more than 475 species of wetland plants described in this book grow in wetlands across eastern North America, and the ranges of many extend west to British Columbia and Alaska. WETLAND PLANTS OF ONTARIO includes edible plants, native uses of plants, a colour photo guide to flowers, ovber 450 colour photographs and 300 line drawings.

About the Author:

DR. STEVEN G. NEWMASTER is curator of the OAC Herbarium at the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario, based at the University of Guelph. Steve is author of more than 30 publications including the new released Flora Ontario, several botanical field guides such as Wetland plants of Ontario, several book chapters, more than a dozen Journal articles on biodiversity and several government reports on ecosystem management and conservation. ALAN G HARRIS is a biologist with 15 years experience in northern Ontario. He is cofounder of Northern Bioscience, an ecological consulting company based in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He also spent seven years as a biologist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. His most recent focus has been on land classification and wetland ecology in northwestern Ontario. LINDA KERSHAW is the best-selling author of a number of nature books published by Lone Pine. She is a career botanist who has consulted and done research for Environment Canada, the World Wildlife Fund, the Alberta Forest Service, the Canadian Forest Service and the University of Alberta. Her extensive field work has taken her into the vast Canadian boreal forest as well as above the treeline in the Rocky Mountains, on Ellesmere Island and in New Zealand. Linda now works as a writer and editor when not pursuing two of her favourite pastimes--photography and illustration. Much of her fieldwork over the past 25 years has focused on the long-term environmental effects of human disturbances in the Mackenzie Mountains and Mackenzie River Basin, NWT. She also has a special interest in rare and endangered species.

Review:

The guide is stuffed-to-bursting with information. All in all, Wetland Plants of Ontario is top-notch. It deserves a place in the pack-sack of anyone exploring the remarkable diversity of eastern Canadian wetlands, especially those slogging through the bogs, swamps, and fens of the Canadian Shield of Ontario. --The Canadian Field Naturalist

...a must for water gardeners and naturalists alike. --London Free Press

Strong organization and effective use of color coding make this a very practical field guide. It is packed with masses of information, all easily accessible during use in the field. Don't go to the swamp without it. --Canadian Book Review Annual
