Aquatic Monocotyledons of North America : Ecology, Life History, and Systematics
Author(s): Donald H. Les
Aquatic Monocotyledons of North America brings together information on the natural history, ecology and systematics of North American aquatic monocotyledons. The book is an overview of the biology of major aquatic species by compiling information from numerous sources that lie scattered among the primary literature, herbarium databases, and other reference sources. Information on more than 300 species in 87 genera of monocotyledons will be included. Recent phylogenetic analyses will be incorporated. Although focusing specifically on North America, the cosmopolitan distribution of many aquatic plants should make this an attractive text to people working virtually anywhere outside of the region as well.
"Aquatic Dicotyledons of North America will be indispensable to North American botanists, wildlife biologists, consulting firms, and other private businesses or government agencies that need highly reputable information about wetland plants. In my view all North American botanists should familiarize themselves with the volume, irrespective of their level of interest in wetland plants... In summary, if it deals with North American wetland plants, you’ll probably find the information therein. It is truly a remarkable achievement." – Neil Snow (Department of Biology, Pittsburg State University) Systematic Botany
