"Over 100 new taxa as a result of continuing field work and recent molecular studies. Perhaps the most useful part of this book are the keys to identification where a person can narrow down their search to the familt or genus of a plant simply by answering dichotomous questions about the appearance of the plants leaves, stem, flowers and fruit."--The Florida Gardener
