Contents Notes
"Here is a comprehensive, significant study of wetlands flora, which encompasses all members of the plant and fungi kingdoms. These include poisonous, hallucinogenic, medicinal, and edible plant life as well as native and non-native plants that have the potential to become troublesome weed species. Complete and accurate details are offered on plant collection and preservation. A special chapter provides nontechnical investigations and projects for those pursuing areas beyond the realm of gathering and identifying flora. Conservation and habitat preservation are emphasized throughout the book." "Illustrated, informative, and easy to read, this hands-on guide will prove an accessible and invaluable companion to professional and amateur naturalists as well as to students and the general public."--Jacket. Introduction -- Wetlands as ecosystems -- Types of plants -- Strategies of survival -- Marshes and swamps -- Bogs and peatlands -- Plants of special interest -- Through the year -- Naming, collecting, and preserving plants -- Activities and investigations -- Glossary.
