Field Guide to the Southern PiedmontField Guide to the Southern Piedmont

Faculty at the University of South Carolina Upstate in Spartanburg recently completed a free field guide to organisms living here in the Piedmont of the Carolinas and Georgia. The Field Guide to the Southern Piedmont is a picture-based identification guide to over 700 species in the region and it includes common animals, plants, fungi, slime molds, animal tracks, skulls and bones, rocks, minerals, and nature sounds. They created the field guide to help the general public easily identify and learn about common organisms they may encounter in their backyard or while hiking a local trail. The field guide can be downloaded as an eBook for free to any electronic device from www.uscupstate.edu/fieldguide and the picture for most species will hyperlink to a reputable website with natural history information.
