NP011. A Field Guide to Wildfowers of the Sandhills Region / Sorrie
A Field Guide to Wildflowers of the Sandhills Region: North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia by Bruce A. Sorrie. Paper

Featuring over 600 wildflowers, flowering shrubs, and vines, this user-friendly field guide is the first to focus on the rare, fragile lands and species of the Sandhills region of the Carolinas and Georgia.

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.

Characterized by longleaf pine forests, rolling hills, abundant blackwater streams, several major rivers, and porous sandy soils, the Sandhills region stretches from Fayetteville, North Carolina, southwest to Columbus, Georgia, and represents the farthest advance of the Atlantic Ocean some two million years ago.
2011. 392pp., 5.5 x 8.5 inches, 553 color plates., 2 drawings, 1 maps, appends., bibl., index

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.
