This trusted guide to the alpine areas of New England is updated, expanded, and as practical as ever. The highest ranges of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont are home to a world of alpine flowers, colorful mosses and lichens, and many animals that survive there despite the difficult terrain and severe weather. Climate change, invasive species, and human impact all threaten the specialized high-elevation flora and fauna treasured for their perseverance and rarity. With 350 full-color photographs, this guide helps you identify and protect the plants, birds, insects, amphibians, and mammals of the alpine zone.
