Winner of the 2005 Klinger Book Award Presented by The Society for Economic Botany. Florida Ethnobotany provides a cross-cultural examination of how the state’s native plants have been used by its various peoples. This compilation includes common names of plants in their historical sequence, weaving together what was formerly esoteric information about each species into a full reference. The author accomplishes the monumental task of translating the common names of species, which offers insight into plant usage and a glimpse into the culture of each ethnic group or tribe. These common botanical names often demonstrate how individuals fit into their societies and how these societies functioned. Although there have been previous studies of plants used by the inhabitants of Florida, this is the first comprehensive synthesis of this flora-rich region that was so pivotal in the history of New World exploration.

"The latest thinking in Eastern Woodlands paleoethnobotany; a volume which belongs on the bookshelf of every archaeologist and paleoethnobotanist who is concerned with plants and culture in North America."--Deborah M. Pearsall, University of Missouri "The papers . . . provide succinct updates in a rapidly developing field [and] explore many facets of the cultural implications of plant remains, taking paleoethnobotanical interpretation in provocative new directions."--Gary W. Crawford, Erindale College Combining broad chronological syntheses and regionally specific case studies, this volume presents up-to-date findings about plant use by prehistoric and early historic peoples who lived in the Eastern Woodlands of North America. The contributors stress that current depictions of the subsistence strategies, settlement patterns, and social relations of these earliest Americans need to be reformulated to accommodate our new understanding of both the importance of native crops and the variability in peoples' foodways.

"This is the first photographic identification guide to have an extensive discussion of plant communities and to organize plants by plant community . . . of interest to anyone desiring to identify Florida flowering plants--individuals who enjoy the outdoors, amateur naturalists, teachers, students, and professional biologists."--Walter Judd, University of Florida Walter Taylor's guide will help readers recognize and identify wildflowers in a different way, not principally by their color or family group, but by where they're most likely to be found growing--their natural habitat. This book is the first of its kind for Florida. Taylor provides detailed descriptions and color photos of each community--pine flatwoods, sandhills, upland pine forest, scrub, temperate hardwood forest, coastal uplands, subtropical pine forest, tropical hardwood hammock, and ruderal sites--and of the wildflower species associated with each. For each flower, he provides the scientific and common names, a brief description, flowering time, habitats, geographical range, color photo, and miscellaneous comments. While most of the flowers are herbaceous, Taylor also includes characteristic woody types. He makes special mention of endangered or threatened species and species of special concern. The guide includes a number of limited-distributed species that have never been published in a book of this type. With individual photos (taken in the field) of more than 450 wildflower species, the most accurate range information available, and organization by ecological community, Taylor's guide aids not only in wildflower identification, but also in appreciation of the Florida landscapes that support them. By linking flowers with their natural habitats, it highlights the need to protect these ecologically unique communities to ensure survival of the wildflowers themselves. In addition, it offers a new resource for gardeners interested in planting native species. Walter Kingsley Taylor is professor of biology at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, and the author of The Guide to Florida Wildflowers. He has lived in Florida for thirty years.
