E. O. Wilson has published a new textbook, Life on Earth, a truly wonderful multimedia experience about ecology and fascinating understandings about living things. Some chapters are about earth's plants. Most remarkable, the series (eventually 41 chapters, with the first 7 currently released) is free. Thank you to the E. O. Wilson Foundation and others. You can download each chapter from iTunes, but be patient. All those beautiful photos and videos within the book make the files very large.

The mission of the Florida Native Plant Society is to promote the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Florida.
