This book barely covers just a few native North American plants.Its still useful for general aquatic plant care. With the exclusive use of scientific names, the book misses the beginning aquarium enthusianst and excludes those setting up native fish aquariums with native plants.That said, if a person sticks to stores and homes, never actually going streamside, he or she can use the plant care information in the book, and the exotic lands aquatic landscaping, and possibly the scientifid names. Neither of the two most abundant aquatic plants of the Texas hill country streams are covered at all. The most aboundant Texas aquatic plant is mentioned in just one sentance in the text, by its its scientific name so most Texans will probably not find it unless they find the single word in the index that does identify it. If your fish and pants come straight from the store to your house, and you are mainly interested in tropical places, you might find this book usefull.
