    Do you think this would also be of help here in Michigan?

    • nyflora Says:

      Definitely a lot of the same species as Michigan so it would help. You could compare the the Michigan list of Carex to the index in this publication and see which ones are left out.

    • Steve Grund Says:

      It probably will be of help in Michigan, and one cannot have too many references when working with difficult groups like Carex. Keep in mind, though, that Volume 1 of Michigan Flora has perhaps the best keys and useful comments about sedges you will find anywhere, and an updated version with the invaluable insights of Tony Reznicek is available online at — Steve Grund
