Abstract: This thesis examines Florida Native plants from the true Environmental Studies perspective. In the first section, what Florida native plants are, their historic presence and importance here, and problems raised by exotic invasive species present in and around the New College of Florida campus are discussed. The second section relays historical stories about the role of native plants at New College, and it discusses possible changes for future campus development utilizing native Florida plants. The final section is an environmental approach to aesthetics, and an aesthetic approach to environmentalism. Particularly emphasizing the importance of systemic relationships, it defines aesthetics, explores the historical roots of environmental issues ill aesthetics, examines current theories, and expands on them from my perspective. This includes the role of balance and symmetry in the aesthetic appreciation of nature, views on the antbropomorphization of nature, and my photographic approach. The thesis is coupled by one 8xl0 photo per each page of text of a Florida Native Plant, viewable on the attached CD as well. This project includes an electronic, self-designed exhibition website, as well as a 3 day photo show exhibition with plantsforpeace.org.
