Description


Field Guide to the Wildflowers of Georgia and Surrounding States is the first field guide devoted exclusively to Georgia's wildflowers, while also including a large number of plants found in neighboring states. Botanist Linda G. Chafin has organized the scientific information in a clear, logical, and accessible way. The guide includes nontechnical species descriptions and comparisons with similar plants, information on the habitats and natural communities that support Georgia's wildflowers, and suggestions for the best places and times to see wildflowers. It also features descriptions of the wildflowers found in forests, woodlands, and wetlands, as well as those growing along roadsides that are often dismissed as "weeds" but which may first attract the attention of budding naturalists.

FEATURES:
A set of 750 thumbnail photographs that allows users to identify plants by flower color
Detailed descriptions for 770 of the most common wildflowers found in Georgia and throughout most of the Southeast, as well as additional information for 530 "similar to" species
Descriptions of the natural communities in Georgia where wildflowers may be easily seen
An alphabetical arrangement by plant family, with each plant family broken down alphabetically by genus and species
A guide to the pronunciation of scientific names
Lightweight and sturdy enough for the field but inclusive enough for the reference shelf
90% or more of the species in this guide also occur in Alabama, North Carolina, and South Carolina
80% or more of the species in this guide also occur in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia
