Description

The Guide to the Vascular Plants of Florida is intended to serve as a means to identify the more than 4,000 taxa of ferns, fern allies, and seed plants that are native or naturalized to Florida. The first section of the books contains the keys for the major vascular plant groups: pteridophytes, gymnosperms, monocotyledons, and dicotyledons. The second section of the books details descriptive flora of the same families and includes common names, habitat, distribution, reproductive seasons, and endemic or exotic status. Expanded and updated, this volume is an indispensable reference to the highly diverse flora of the state. Both popular and comprehensive, this new edition contains updated nomenclature and the inclusion of more than 100 additional species, making it the most inclusive identification manual to the more than 4,200 taxa native to or naturalized in Florida.
