This richly illustrated field guide serves as an introduction to the wildflowers and plant communities of the southern Appalachians and the rolling hills of the adjoining piedmont. Rather than organizing plants, including trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, by flower color or family characteristics, as is done in most guidebooks, botanist Tim Spira takes a holistic, ecological approach that enables the reader to identify and learn about plants in their natural communities. This approach, says Spira, better reflects the natural world, as plants, like other organisms, don't live in isolation; they coexist and interact in myriad ways. Full-color photo keys allow the reader to rapidly preview plants found within each of the 21 major plant communities described, and the illustrated species description for each of the 340 featured plants includes fascinating information about the ecology and natural history of each plant in its larger environment. With this new format, readers can see how the mountain and piedmont landscapes form a mosaic of plant communities that harbor particular groups of plants. The volume also includes a glossary, illustrations of plant structures, and descriptions of sites to visit. Whether you're a beginning naturalist or an expert botanist, this guidebook is a useful companion on field excursions and wildflower walks, as well as a valuable reference.

From woodlands to wetlands and from roadsides to sandy beaches, Common Flowering Plants of the Northeast is a ready reference tool for identifying plants in their native habitat. It is a habitat-oriented guide to common flowering plants in the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada. Donald D. Cox skillfully integrates ecological and taxonomic information, impressing upon the user the often intimate relationship between the organism and its habitat. The information is presented in botanically accurate yet nontechnical language, making it useful to students of botany and ecology and to interested nonspecialists. A unique feature of the guide is its treatment of the food, medicinal, and poisonous qualities of common plants. It also features a fully illustrated key for easily identifying the family to which a plant belongs, and more than 400 finely detailed line drawings to facilitate species identification. Each species is described with regard to origin, type of life cycle, method of pollination, method of seed dispersal, and value to wildlife as a food plant.
