"If you are challenged by trying to garden on property facing salt or brackish water, here's help."--Southern Living "This is the homeowner's complete tome to coastal (read that 'salt-tolerant') plants. . . . A great guide for home or office areas."--Palm Beach Post Common Coastal Plants in Florida is a practical guide to identifying, obtaining, planting, and maintaining the plants most frequently found along the fringes and sandy shores of the Sunshine State. Black, white, and red mangrove, sea ox-eye daisy, saltgrass, marsh-elder and beach-elder, needle rush and black rush, smooth cordgrass, salt jointgrass, marsh-hay, bitter panicum and sea-oats are just a handful of the plants profiled in this beautiful and useful volume. Complete descriptions of Florida's beach, dune, and wetland communities and a guide to selection and cultivation of plant species appropriate for each type help gardeners assess the needs of their coastal properties. Plant characteristics, plant availability, planting and maintenance guidelines, commercial sources for vegetation, and suggestions for additional reading provide basic hands-on, how-to information. Forty color photographs and 35 drawings serve as a convenient, user-friendly identification guide for gardeners and beachcombers alike. Florida's fragile coastal communities are increasingly threatened by erosion--the result of weather, rising sea levels, and human impact on the environment. The editors of this volume explain how plant habitats help protect these areas, functioning as sand or soil traps and stabilizers, providing food and shelter for wildlife, contributing to water-quality maintenance, and beautifying our state. Since its first appearance in 1990, Common Coastal Plants has been an authoritative and popular guide. This new edition is sure to prove equally useful to the ever-increasing number of homeowners along Florida's coastline and to anyone interested in protecting one of the state's most important natural resources.

Written for biology students, teachers, nature lovers, amateur naturalists, conservation workers, and parks and wildlife personnel, this up-to-date, easy-to-use guide describes the marine plants of the Gulf of Mexico coast. The author’s photographs accompany the updated identification keys, which are also visually oriented and simple to use. Veteran botanist and educator Roy L. Lehman describes the plants in four major sections, covering the common shoreline plants, seagrasses, mangroves, and marine algae (red, brown, and green seaweeds). Each section begins with an introduction that gives an overview of the plant group and includes information on the important traits and terminology used for identification. A simple key to the family or order directs the reader to the appropriate section, where the text is arranged alphabetically by family and then by genus and species. Each genus is illustrated by high quality photographs that include a close-up of each plant and images of its reproductive structures. Marine Plants of the Texas Coast collects these unique species for the first time in a single volume. As coastal issues, such as hurricane preparedness, beach erosion, wetland mitigation, freshwater inflows, and more, remain in the forefront of public concern, this botanical reference should find a permanent place on the bookshelves of scientists, policy makers, and citizens alike.
