About the Author

Sylvan Runkel (1906--1995) was the coauthor of five books about midwestern wildflowers, including Wildflowers of the Tallgrass Prairie (Iowa paperback, 2009) and Wildflowers of Iowa Woodlands (Iowa paperback, 2009). A vigorous promoter of conservation for many years, he was honored by the dedication of the Sylvan Runkel State Preserve in 1996. Conservationist Dean Roosa has served as Iowa's state ecologist, board member for the Iowa Chapter of the Nature Conservancy and the Natural Areas Association, chair of the Iowa Natural History Association, and president of the Iowa Ornithologists' Union. He is the coauthor of Wildflowers of the Tallgrass Prairie and The Vascular Plants of Iowa (Iowa, 1994). A professor of ecology and botany at Drake University, Thomas Rosburg has served as president of the Iowa Academy of Science and as a member of the board of directors for the Iowa Chapter of the Nature Conservancy. Winner of the Sierra Club Environmental Educator Award, the Prairie Advocate Award, the Governor's Iowa Environmental Excellence Award, and many other distinctions, he is also the photographer for many University of Iowa Press publications, including Trees in Your Pocket (2012) and Wildflowers of the Tallgrass Prairie (2010). He has published over 360 images in a wide range of books, magazines, calendars, and brochures, including National Geographic, Sierra, The Iowan, and the American Journal of Botany.


"There are none better suited and better qualified to teach us about Iowa's aquatic plants and wetlands than Dean Roosa and the late Sylvan Runkel. . . . This book is a splendid introduction to the different types of wetlands in Iowa and their beautiful and varied flora. By enabling more people to become familiar with our wetlands, this book will help ensure that those wetlands that remain and are being restored will not disappear. It is a fitting capstone to Sy Runkel's long and productive career."--from the foreword by Arnold van der Valk
