Louisiana Trees & Wildflowers: A Folding Pocket Guide to Familiar Plants (Pocket Naturalist Guide) (Hardcover)
Thousands of plant species, including over 2500 native species, grow in the Louisiana, which has a warm, humid climate and various ecosystems, including grasslands, savannas, hardwood forests, and rich swamps. Getting to know landscapes and wetlands often starts with plant identification and then a deeper understanding of the ecological relationships among species. Sifting through so many species is challenging, so it helps to have a portable reference to cut through the clutter and focus on the most familiar species. The beautifully illustrated Louisiana Trees & Wildflowers features 140 common trees, shrubs, and wildflowers, as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a fitting companion for educators, learners, naturalists, ad botanists who wish to sharpen their plant ID skills and peer more closely into their fascinating life histories. Made in the USA.
