Overview

"For everyone who studies or simply enjoys the variety of wild plants that grow in the counties of Texas' coastal bend, here is an authoritative, user-friendly book that will make an excellent reference. The authors have provided well-organized, informative species accounts along with reliable identification keys for more than one thousand of the region's trees, shrubs, vines, and wildflowers." Organized by botanical class and then alphabetically by family, genus, and species, the plants are characterized by appearance, size, habit, occurrence, soil preference, flowering period if appropriate, and, in the case of non-native species, place of origins. The authors provide common names if available and additional information for rare and endangered plants. The key, which are formatted to help avoid error and confusion in scientific identification, are easy and logical enough to aid amateur naturalists in identifying local wildflowers, making them useful for botany students and nature lovers alike. The book now contains nearly 70 individual drawings and is accompanied by an invaluable CD with more than 750 color photographs.
