I'm a retired librarian living and botanizing on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy. I generally start with Newcomb's "Wildflower Guide" and Hinds's "Flora of New Brunswick", and check the "Flora of the Grand Manan Archipelago" to see if my identification is plausible. Other helpful books include Davis's "Bogs and Fens" and Chadde's "Northeast Ferns" and two old ones: "Plantes sauvages au bord de la mer" published by Fleurbec, and Glen Blouin's "Weeds of the Woods". I own "Sedges of Maine", and I hope someday to be able to identify more sedges because they are so abundant, so various, and so beautiful.
