Information on more than 300 species in 87 genera of monocotyledons will be included. Recent phylogenetic analyses will be incorporated. Although focusing specifically on North America, the cosmopolitan distribution of many aquatic plants should make this an attractive text to people working virtually anywhere outside of the region as well.

"Aquatic Dicotyledons of North America will be indispensable to North American botanists, wildlife biologists, consulting firms, and other private businesses or government agencies that need highly reputable information about wetland plants. In my view all North American botanists should familiarize themselves with the volume, irrespective of their level of interest in wetland plants... In summary, if it deals with North American wetland plants, you'll probably find the information therein. It is truly a remarkable achievement." - Neil Snow (Department of Biology, Pittsburg State University) Systematic Botany
