Sunflower family species are everywhere, on every continent except Antarctica.  With over 23,000 species worldwide, the Sunflower Family (Asteraceae) is arguably the largest plant family on Earth.  Within eastern North America, Asteraceae can be found in nearly all habitats, from our highest peaks to our coastlines, and from unspoiled wilderness areas to the cracks in urban pavements.  This photographic presentation will lead you on an informative, colorful overview of some of the amazingly diverse, beautiful and intriguing Sunflower family species of northeastern North America.
