Guide to Great Lakes Coastal Plants
The coastal beaches of the Great Lakes are some of the most outstanding features of this vast chain of freshwater lakes. Many plants of this region grow nowhere else, and a number of protected species are found along the shoreline.
In Guide to Great Lakes Coastal Plants Ellen Elliott Weatherbee provides simple yet authoritative descriptions of sixty-seven of the most interesting plants found on the United States and Canadian shores. Each plant is illustrated with color photographs and line drawings for ease in identification. Wildlife and ethnobotanical uses add fascinating information about the plants, and distribution maps are included for easy reference.
This is a must-have field guide for anyone who enjoys the natural beauty of wildflowers.
The University of Michigan Press worked in collaboration with Michigan Sea Grant on the development of this guidebook, the first in a series of books about the Great Lakes coast.
