    B. SEDGES OF MAINE: A FIELD GUIDE TO CYPERACEAE
Matt Arsenault and Glen Mittelhauser will join us on Tuesday, October 8th at 3:00 pm in the University Club for a presentation about Sedges of Maine: A Field Guide to Cyperaceae by Matt Arsenault, Glen H. Mittelhauser, Don Cameron, Alison C. Dibble, Arthur Haines, Sally C. Rooney, and Jill E. Weber, published by the University Press. "Sedges are important components of Maine’s biodiversity and natural heritage. Over 25% of the sedge species in Maine are of conservation concern, yet sedges are ubiquitous in many habitats across the landscape... Sedges of Maine is a fully-illustrated guide to all species, subspecies, and extant hybrids in the Cyperaceae family that occur in Maine."
