I use this everywhere I go, especially if I go for nature walks or beach strolls with my young one. I’ve learned a lot. It’s readable, easy to look up stuff, and packed with everything Florida.

Shelves: nonfiction
Good overview of the state's ecosystems and natural splendors followed by more in-depth exploration of plants, insects, snakes, fishes, mammals, and so on. For visitors whose home turf doesn't feature mangrove swamps or tropical reefs, this is a great "what's that?" go-to resource. One feature that I particularly liked is the section that lists nature preserves and parks, with details of what to expect when you get there.

Of all the Audubon regional field guides, this is only one devoted to a single state. (All the others cover an entire region of the United States.) Now that I've been in Florida for awhile, I can see why that was a necessary -- in spite of the developers' best efforts. No wonder Audubon had a home on the Florida Keys.

Lots of great information. I was really looking for something that listed edible and non-edible plants that grow wild in Florida. This book lists some (like the coco plum), but not all. It's fairly basic and I wouldn't trust it for a guide on wild foraging.

Although it's not very complete, this guide gives a great overview of species common in Florida. Well-organized and easy to get to what you're looking for. But definitely should be supplemented with more specific guides, as there's a LOT missing here.

A great and handy field guide to natural Florida. has Flora, Fauna, Stars, Weather, & Geology. I keep a copy in my car and use it all the time. Perfect size to stuff in a big pocket, small bag, or purse.
