An Introduction to the Genus Carex (Cyperaceae)

Illustrations by Rachel D. Davis; Maps and Appendices by Merel R. Black and Theodore S. Cochrane

For both botanists and gardeners, a full-color introduction to an important genus of wetland plants that make up about 7 percent of the flora of the Upper Midwest

Sedges are among the world’s most diverse and ecologically important plant families, with almost two hundred species in Wisconsin alone. These grass-like plants, found mostly in wetlands, are increasingly popular with landscapers and home gardeners. Learning to identify sedges is challenging, however, and the available technical guides to the sedge family can be overwhelming to a nonspecialist. Field Guide to Wisconsin Sedges is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the largest sedge genus, Carex, which alone makes up about 7 percent of the flora of the Upper Midwest.

Written primarily for naturalists, wild plant enthusiasts, and native landscapers, this book is unique in its accessible format and illustrations. With this book, readers can learn to recognize key structures needed to identify approximately 150 Carex species found in Wisconsin. Author Andrew Hipp shows how to identify many of the major groupings of sedges that are used in guides to the genus throughout the world. For botanists who are not experts on sedges, he also provides guidelines for distinguishing among similar species. Readers should be able to identify more than 90 percent of the sedges they find in the field using no more than this guidebook and a hand lens.

Field Guide to Wisconsin Sedges includes information on habitat and range drawn from Hipp’s extensive field experience and inspection of thousands of herbarium sheets. Primarily an identification guide, it is a helpful source of information for landscapers, gardeners, and restorationists.
