guide to native plants?

Would anyone be able to recommend a good guide to the aquatic plants growing in Massachusetts? I'd love to do some collecting if I knew what I was looking for...
Thanks

The New England Aquarium, along with MA Dept. of Environmental Management, put out A Guide to Aquatic Plants in Massachusetts. Its from 1999, but the info is still good. If they still have copies left, you can request them at:

New England Aquarium
Research Dept.
c/o Aquatic Biodiversity Program

Thanks for sharing. I've been wanting to do some local collections for plants.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

Would still be nice to also have a book you can take with you as you collect, especially one with photos...
