Buttonbush. Hercules' Club. Panic Grass. Tearthumb. Beach Spurge. Sea Rocket. Ladies' Tresses. These name a few of the wild and wonderful plants found in this quick reference guide to native plants of the Chesapeake Bay.

Written by wetland scientists with decades of experience in the Bay's waterways, this guide includes detailed descriptions and beautiful photographs of the plants most commonly found in the Chesapeake Bay. Grasses, trees, wildflowers, aquatic vegetation--if it grows in the tidal or nearshore regions of the Bay, chances are it is in this book, whose features include

- over 200 illustrations- information on more than 100 species of plants- clear, accessible descriptions of each plant accompanied by close-up photographs for quick, accurate identification- discussion of where to find each plant, how they reproduce, and how humans use them- easy-to-follow organization by habitat

The guide's vivid text and photographs make the wide array of plants along the waters, marshes, and shorelines of the Chesapeake Bay easy to identify and wondrous to behold. Its compact, portable design encourages naturalists, local residents, boaters, researchers, and the curious-minded alike to throw the guide in their backpacks and explore the botanical bounty of the Chesapeake Bay.
