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.

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