These larger format laminated recognition cards will help professionals, students and the general public learn to recognize up to 80 non-native and invasive plant species found throughout Florida. All of these plant species are currently targeted for control in public waters and conservation lands around the state by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and other management agencies. Individual cards feature full color photographs on the front to help with visual recognition, as well as helpful information on the back about the plant’s appearance (leaves, flowers, and fruit). Plant distribution and ecological threat information also are provided. Alphabetized by scientific name, the cards are bound with a metal clasping ring that allows you to add, remove, or reorganize the cards as needed.

All sets include an index in the front section with plants listed by both common and scientific names; a text glossary of botanical terminology; an illustrated glossary; and a bibliography.

ATTENTION TEACHERS: These same cards are available as Flash Cards, with only a photo on the front (no text) and the plant name and information on the back (UF/IFAS SP 442).
