Field Guide to Tidal Wetland Plants of the Northeastern United States and Neighboring Canada, revised and expanded edition

Vegetation of Beaches, Tidal Flats, Rocky Shores, Marshes, Swamps, and Coastal Ponds

First published in 1987, Ralph W. Tiner's A Field Guide to Coastal Wetland Plants of the Northeastern United States soon established itself as the definitive work on its subject. Now Tiner has prepared a revised and expanded edition, broadening the coverage both botanically and geographically. It emphasizes plant identification and includes descriptions of over 700 species and illustrations of approximately 550 species. More tidal wetland types are covered (beaches, rocky shores, and tidal swamps) and the geographic scope extends as far north as Canada's Maritime Provinces.

Reviews

"A delight to read and a pleasure to use. . . . Whether you are a botanist, a wetland ecologist, or someone with an interest in wetland plants, this useful and attractive book should be on your bookshelf."—Science Books and Films

"A useful reference for non-technical laypeople and specialists alike."—Quarterly Review of Biology

"Tiner has assembled descriptions and line drawings of 150 vascular plants common in coastal habitats, including rocky shores, tidal flats, salt marshes, brackish marshes, tidal swamps, and coastal aquatic beds. An additional 130 species are referred to briefly. . . . The book is very suitable for its intended audience of 'nontechnical' persons interested in coastal habitats such as conservation commissioners, environmental consultants, and students in botany, ecology, and environmental science. Inclusion of maps and descriptions of places with good public access to observe coastal wetlands is very valuable."—Choice

"The only text of its kind. . . . Recommended for all coastal enthusiasts and will be an excellent guide for visits to any coastal site in the area of coverage."—Wildlife Review

"The Field Guide to Tidal Wetland Plants of Northeastern United States and Neighboring Canada is a much needed update and expansion of his 1987 work- the Field Guide To Coastal Wetland Plants of Northeastern United States."—Plant Science Bulletin

"Beyond simply containing more plants, the new guide includes a rather comprehensive update to the species descriptions, most of which gained considerable breadth following recent advances in the science. . . . True to the original, this revised and expanded edition remains in many ways the only text of its kind, providing a rich and detailed guide of the often-underappreciated plants of coastal and tidal wetlands."—Rhodora
