An impressive diversity of plant life is packed into the relatively small land mass that is Delaware. An impressive 1,600 native plant species and varieties grow across the 140 distinct plant communities in the First State, among them the state tree American Holly. The study of plants offers a window into the character of any landscape, and it can be overwhelming to sift through over a thousand species. It's useful, then, to have a portable reference like Delaware Trees & Wildflowers to get oriented with the species that are most commonly seen. In this beautifully illustrated collection are 140 plant species as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries. Laminated for durability, this 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists and botanists who wish to identify common plant as well as develop a deeper understanding of their fascinating ecosystem roles. Made in the USA.
