An absolutely superb reference for anyone with an interest in the world's tropical flora. Plants have been selected to reflect the major plant groups in the tropics worldwide and organised according to the latest nomenclature and systematics.

Detailed information on tropical plants is not easily accessible, yet there is huge interest in the beautiful and fascinating flora from the tropical regions of the world. In this comprehensive survey the species have been arranged in phylogenic order, making identification and comparison of similar plants easier. High-quality colour photographs illustrate the major features of the plants described. The entries provide information on botanical and common names, a detailed botanical description, including propagation and cultivation notes.

Forewords by Professor Mark W. Chase FRS, Keeper of the Jodrell Laboratory, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Professor Peter D. Kemp, Head, Institute of Natural Resources, Massey University, Palmerston North.

286 x 213 mm, 720 colour pages, 3000 colour photographs, hardback with jacket.
