Wildflowers of the Sandhills Region is arranged by habitat, with color tabs to facilitate easy browsing of the nine different natural communities and includes common plants, region-specific endemics, and local rarities, each with its own species description, and over 540 color photos for easy identification. In addition it provides an introduction to the region's geology, soil types, and special relationship to fire ecology; an overview of rare species and present conservation efforts; a glossary and key to flower and leaf structures; and a listing of gardens, preserves, and parklands in the Sandhills region and nearby where wildflowers can be seen and appreciated.

NP013. Native Orchids of the Southern Appalachian Mountains / Bentley
Native Orchids of the Southern Appalachian Mountains by Stanley L. Bentley. Paper

It covers the 52 species--including one discovered by Bentley and named after him--found in a region encompassing western Virginia and North Carolina and eastern West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

Each orchid’s entry provides the scientific and common names, a description of the flower (including color, shape, and size), and information on the time of flowering, range, and typical habitat, all in the context of the southern mountains. A range map accompanies each description, and Bentley's own superb photographs are an additional aid to identification.

Using straightforward language yet incorporating the most up-to-date scientific information and nomenclature, the book will be welcomed by amateur naturalists or professional botanists looking for species in the field and by those who simply enjoy photographs of beautiful wildflowers.

NP024. Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain / Neyland
Wildflowers of the Coastal Plain: A Field Guide by Ray Neyland. Paper

Provides detailed information on 535 species of herbaceous plants, vines, and shrubs. The coastal plain extends from southeast Texas eastward to Florida (including the Mississippi River flood plain stretching southward from southern Illinois). It embraces all but the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and proceeds up the eastern seaboard into southern New Jersey and includes parts of Long Island and Cape Cod. This indispensable guide catalogs the native flora, as well as the naturalized species found throughout the far-flung but unified coastal plain.

Each illuminating entry includes a vivid color photograph of the wildflower in its natural setting, the plant's scientific and common names, and a precise description of the species, including its range and blooming time. Some entries describe modern and historical applications for the plants -- such as use by Native Americans for food or medicine -- and mention closely related species to prevent confusion in identification. The volume's simplified glossary and a series of line drawings explain essential botanical terms. Dichotomous keys facilitate a helpful step-by-step identification method, allowing readers to begin with what they know -- a flower's color -- and then follow a process of elimination (Is the plant aquatic or not? Are the leaves fan shaped or linear?).
2009. 337pp. 6 x 9 inches.
