Priceless Florida presents the incomparable ecological riches of this unique region in a way that will appeal to young and old, laypersons and scientists. A cornucopia of colorful illustrations and exquisite photos makes you feel you?re there. The comprehensive text enlightens with facts and brims with intriguing curiosities while bridging multiple fields in a crisp, readable style that only seasoned science-educators like Drs. Whitney, Means, and Rudloe could offer. The authors enlighten us on every kind of natural area found within the Sunshine State. Imagine yourself trekking into a hammock, slogging through a swamp, floating down a river, strolling along a beach, hovering over a coral reef, or probing the depths of an underwater cave. You?ll discover how everything from soils, rocks, water, and landforms shape flora and fauna?and vice versa. You?ll also learn how the survival of some of the world?s most endangered species and ecosystems hinges on our actions. Much of Florida has been bought and sold many times over, but this book makes clear how its value truly has no pricetag.
