A classic Mississippi guidebook now back in print

With its variety of habitats, Mississippi contains an especially rich and diverse set of native and naturalized flowering plants.

First published in 1989, this handy volume is the comprehensive, full-color guide to the state's lush array of wildflowers. Now available again, it provides both professional and amateur botanists a quick yet authoritative resource for identifying more than five hundred of the wildflowers found in Mississippi and its contiguous states. An appendix provides scientific names that have changed since the original edition.

Descriptions of species have been consistently organized for ready reference and comparison. Information on plants has been arranged alphabetically by family, genera, and species within the two groups of flowering plants. Each of the five hundred plus species is fully described and is identified by one or more full-color photographs.

Stephen L. Timme is professor of botany and director of the Theodore M. Sperry Herbarium at Pittsburg State University in Kansas. He is coauthor of Medicinal and Useful Plants of the Upper Amazon.
