Praise for Flora of Florida, Volume II

“A monumental undertaking and a definitive and up-to-date treatise on Florida’s dicotyledons. There is a fantastic wealth of information for every family and every species.”–Walter Kingsley Taylor, author of Florida Wildflowers: A Comprehensive Guide

.

In the second volume of the Flora of Florida collection, Richard P. Wunderlin and Bruce F. Hansen continue the chief work of providing a means to identify the vast array of plants that populate that Sunshine State. Containing the taxonomic treatments of 52 families in 17 orders of dicotyledons, each entry of Volume II includes the current accepted scientific name of each species, the major nomenclatural synonyms, many common names, general habitat preferences, and, for plants not native to Florida, the place of origin.

With taxonomic keys to family, genus, and species, and with families arranged alphabetically for easy reference, the Flora of Florida collection is the standard reference for botanists, researchers, consultants, and students alike.

Richard P. Wunderlin is professor emeritus of biology at the University of South Florida. Bruce F. Hansen is curator emeritus of biology at the University of South Florida Herbarium. Together, Wunderlin and Hansen have coauthored Flora of Florida, Volume 1 and Guide to the Vascular Plants of Florida, 3rd edition.
