This richly illustrated field guide serves as an introduction to the wildflowers and plant communities of the southern Appalachians and the rolling hills of the adjoining piedmont. Rather than organizing plants, including trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, by flower color or family characteristics, as is done in most guidebooks, botanist Tim Spira takes a holistic, ecological approach that enables the reader to identify and learn about plants in their natural communities. This approach, says Spira, better reflects the natural world, as plants, like other organisms, don't live in isolation; they coexist and interact in myriad ways. Full-color photo keys allow the reader to rapidly preview plants found within each of the 21 major plant communities described, and the illustrated species description for each of the 340 featured plants includes fascinating information about the ecology and natural history of each plant in its larger environment. With this new format, readers can see how the mountain and piedmont landscapes form a mosaic of plant communities that harbor particular groups of plants. The volume also includes a glossary, illustrations of plant structures, and descriptions of sites to visit. Whether you're a beginning naturalist or an expert botanist, this guidebook is a useful companion on field excursions and wildflower walks, as well as a valuable reference.

If you love waterfalls, here are some of the best hikes in the Southern Appalachians. And if you love plants--or simply would like to learn more about them--you will be in hiking heaven: naturalist Tim Spira's guidebook links waterfalls and wildflowers in a spectacularly beautiful region famous for both. Leading you to gorgeous waterfalls in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Georgia, the book includes many hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and along the Blue Ridge Parkway. As he surveys one of America's most biologically diverse regions, Spira introduces hikers to the "natural communities" approach for identifying and understanding plants within the context of the habitats they occupy--equipping hikers to see and interpret landscapes in a new way. Each of the 30 hikes includes: * a detailed map and GPS coordinates * a lively trail description highlighting the plants you are most likely to see, as well as birds and other animals along the way * an associated plant species list Also featured: * beautiful color photographs of 30 destination waterfalls, 125 plants, and more * detailed descriptions of 125 key plant species * 22 drawings to help identify plant structures * a glossary of botanical terms

"Flowers flow and bend on and off the paper as if still full of the life they had in the field." Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser With an artist's eye and an unwavering attention to detail, Lucile Parker meticulously examined several specimens of each flower in order to capture its vivacity in her magnificent watercolor paintings. In this way, Mrs. Parker was able to convey the essence of the fragile, delicate Birds-Foot Violet and the robust, color-splashed Indian Pink-even to those who have never seen the flowers themselves. A combination art book and easy-to-use botanical guide, this volume was assembled primarily for the flower lover rather than for the professional botanist. Indexes by common and scientific names and by family are provided, along with descriptions of the plants, their habitats and growing conditions, and the months during which they bloom.

To enjoy using this book, learn its limitations, for to ignore them will lead to frustration. With perhaps a thousand kinds of flowering plants in the San Francisco Bay Region, there are here included as spring wildflowers only about 300 kinds. Obviously many limitations had to be set and, nature lacking sharp boundaries, choices often had to be arbitrary.
