Walter Kingsley Taylor

University Press of Florida

Florida Wildflowers: A Comprehensive Guide is a new edition of Florida Wildflowers in their Natural Communities, vastly expanded with wetlands coverage and updated with new taxonomy. This is a different kind of field guide, one that categorizes Florida wildflowers not just by their color or family group, but by the natural habitats in which they’re found. Over 500 color photos and detailed descriptions outline the major terrestrial communities of Florida and the wildflowers unique to each. It also includes a guide to identifying wildflowers, a list of places to visit, a glossary, references, and indexes of people and places, species and families. Whether you’re a gardener, a naturalist, or just a visitor interested in Florida’s ecology, you’ll find this guide indispensible.

584 pp.
