Bogs & Fens

A Guide to the Peatland Plants of the Northeastern United States and Adjacent Canada

Author: Richard Davis

Paperback 304 pages

The word is spreading among outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers that bogs and fens (peatlands) are among the most fascinating and beautiful places to visit. This growing reputation, along with the development of boardwalks that allow a close look at the ecosystem without getting one s feet wet, has led to an upsurge in visits to these wetlands. To aid the increasing number of bog walkers, Ronald B. Davis has produced an attractive and informative guide to the trees, shrubs, and wildflowers of the peatlands of the greater American northeastern region. The book covers 155 of the species most likely to be discovered alongside the boardwalks and presents stunning photographs of 98 of them. It includes a primer on the ecology of peatlands and offers an invaluable guide to 78 peatlands with boardwalks across the region. This essential guide to the wonders of the bog trails will appeal to boardwalk newbies and old pros alike." - Goodsreads.com
