Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The two authors of this book are both employed at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota Florida. This magnificent enclave has become my second home since retiring to Florida over twenty years ago. I cannot extol too highly what a treasure of Botanical gems it holds. The gardens' collection of Bromiliads is excelled by the Fairchild Gardens of Miami but holds its own with the beauty of it's setting jutting out into Sarasota Bay.
This book is an excellent guide both for the amateur and specialist to the few native species of the Family Bromiliaceae to be found in the state of Florida. Of the 3400 species recognized in that family in North and South America, only some 16 species are native to Florida. (Only one species has been found in the old world;a small area in west Africa adjacent to Brazil). R.P.. Wunderlin's "Guide to Vascular Plants of Florida" lists two more species as established exotics that have escaped from cultivation; one is a Billbergia in Manatee and Dade counties and one a Dyckia in Pinellis county. Otherwise of the truly native species twelve are Tillandsias, one a Guzmania and three are Catopsis. (Two valid hybreds are also recognized). I'm afraid all native species are eclipsed in horticultural interest by the glorious array in central and South America. Only one species is truly endemic in Florida and that is T. simulata. All other Florida species are also found in the Mexico, the Caribbean and central America. Our most common species T. usneoides spills over as far as Texas and a few adjacent states but the other common and rare species are restricted in the United States to Florida. Though few in number some are of biological interest. T.

A comprehensive review of Florida's unique native plants. Very thorough guide - somewhat technical but having all questions answered.

A well-written book by two experts who share information on native bromeliads that, until this publication, was not available without extensive research.

The late Harry Luther and David Benzig of Marie Selby Bontanical Gardens have written the definitive volume describing native bromeliads in Florida. The have included detailed anatomical and reproductive descriptions as well as habitat descriptions and current status in the wild. Good in situ photographs, most in color, help with identification. There is also a useful key to the genera and species found in Florida. Beyond the the plants, they discuss threats to the current populations and their importance in the various ecosystems. I would recommend this for professionals, outdoors lovers and tourists visiting Florida's extensive park system.

This is an excellent book! I just wanted to learn the bromeliads we have here in So. Florida, I found this is a very thorough, readable source of information about them. Anyone interested in bromeliads, whether our natives or not should read this book.
