About the Author
What People are Saying About This
The only text of its kind.... Recommended for all coastal enthusiasts and will be an excellent guide for visits to any coastal site in the area of coverage.
A useful reference for non-technical laypeople and specialists alike.
Tiner has assembled descriptions and line drawings of 150 vascular plants common in coastal habitats, including rocky shores, tidal flats, salt marshes, brackish marshes, tidal swamps, and coastal aquatic beds. An additional 130 species are referred to briefly.... The book is very suitable for its intended audience of 'nontechnical' persons interested in coastal habitats such as conservation commissioners, environmental consultants, and students in botany, ecology, and environmental science. Inclusion of maps and descriptions of places with good public access to observe coastal wetlands is very valuable.
A delight to read and a pleasure to use.... Whether you are a botanist, a wetland ecologist, or someone with an interest in wetland plants, this useful and attractive book should be on your bookshelf.
