From Pineapple Press:

At least 163 kinds of ferns have been recorded in Florida. From northern species whose southern ranges extend into the rolling uplands of the state's northern tier to tropical treasures that spill over the state's southern tip, Florida is without parallel in fern diversity and number. No other like-sized region of the continental United States can boast such an expanded assortment.

Color plates feature more than 200 images, some of which include rare species never before illustrated in color. Clearly written detailed descriptions, along with helpful identification tips and a selection of botanical keys - all of which are based on field observations - help readers identify plants in the wild. Also included are notes on each species' growth form and habitat, as well as general remarks about its botanical and common names, unique characteristics, garden use, and history in Florida.

Other important features of the book include a complete glossary, a section on the fern life cycle and structure, a history of fern study in Florida, a discussion of some of the state's best natural ferneries, and an extensive bibliography.
