The geography and botany problems of irreducible non-spin symplectic 4-manifolds with a choice of fundamental group from {ℤp,ℤp⊕ℤq,ℤ,ℤ⊕ℤp,ℤ⊕ℤ} are studied by building upon the recent progress obtained on the simply connected realm. Results on the botany of simply connected 4-manifolds not available in the literature are extended.
