Publisher Comments:

This beautifully illustrated book introduces readers to 125 frequently encountered wildflowers and other plants that grow in coastal habitats from Massachusetts to central Florida. Drawn from the authors' many years of studying, photographing, and teaching others about plants and their habitats, this handy guide will appeal to everyone from the budding naturalist out to enjoy a day at the beach to the professional scientist seeking accurate, current information about coastal plants.

Organized by plant family, the guide provides the scientific and common names for each species, notes about its range and habitat, and a detailed botanical description that includes information about its growth habits and life history, flowers and fruits, human uses, and importance to wildlife. An exceptional color photograph accompanies each entry. Other features include a section on planning field trips to coastal areas, a glossary, and a list of selected natural areas to visit.
