By Robert H. Mohlenbrock

Veteran botanist, medical writer, and professor Robert H. Mohlenbrock brings the complete intensity of his services and scholarship to his most up-to-date publication, Acanthaceae to Myricaceae:  Water Willows to Wax Myrtles, the 3rd of 4 volumes within the Aquatic and status Water vegetation of the valuable Midwest series.  This easy-to-use illustrated reference consultant covers aquatic and status water crops for the states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Kentucky (excluding the biologically designated Cumberland Mountain sector of japanese Kentucky), from spearmint to wintergreen, from aster to waterwort. 

The quantity identifies, describes, and organizes species in 3 teams, together with actually aquatic vegetation, which spend their whole lifestyles with their vegetative components both thoroughly submerged or floating at the water’ s floor; emergents, that are frequently rooted below water with their vegetative components status above the water’ s floor; and wetland vegetation, which dwell so much or all in their lives out of water, yet which could reside no less than 3 months in water.

Mohlenbrock lists the taxa alphabetically, and inside each one taxon, he describes the species with the medical names he deems perfect (indicating if his opinion differs from that of the U.S. Fish and flora and fauna Service), universal names, identity standards, line drawings, geographical distribution, habitat description, and legitimate U.S. Fish and natural world carrier wetlands designation as defined via the nationwide Wetland stock part in 1988.
