Excerpts

Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain provides detailed information on 535 species of herbaceous plants, vines, and shrubs that inhabit the great floristic provinces of the United States- the Lower Mississippi Valley, Gulf and Atlantic Coastal States. Entries are arranged alphabetically by family and scientific name, and are accompanied by a vivid color photograph of the wildflower in its natural setting and a precise description of the species, including its range and blooming time. Some entries describe modern and historical applications for the plantsshy;-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 series of line drawings explain essential botanical terms. Dichotomous keys facilitate step-by-step identification methods, 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 for outdoor excursions. With its beautiful color photographs, instructive descriptions, and wide-ranging geographic scope, Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain presents an exceptional reference for every nature and wildflower lover.
