IFAS experts have assembled these 3.75"x6" laminated cards to help professionals, students, and the general public learn to recognize 80 of the non-native and invasive plant species found throughout Florida. All of these plant species are currently targeted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for control in public waters and conservation lands around the state.
The front of each plant card features a color photograph and plant name to help with visual recognition, and the back contains information about the plant's overall appearance, leaves, flowers, fruit, ecological threat, and distribution. Alphabetized by scientific name, the cards are bound with a metal clasping ring that allows you to remove, add, or reorganize the cards to fit your specific needs.
This lavish set is made up of 80 plant cards and 12 informational cards including a glossary of plant terminology; a list of plants by common and scientific names; a labeled set of illustrated plant parts; and bibliography. A handy ruler is provided on the last card.
