Costa Rican Natural History is a synthesis of existing knowledge about the flora and fauna of Costa Rica. The major portion of Costa Rican Natural History consists of detailed accounts of agricultural species, vegetation, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds, and insects.
"This is an extraordinary, virtually unique work [...] The tremendous amount of original, previously unpublished, firsthand information is remarkable."
– Peter H. Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden
"An essential resource for anyone interested in tropical biology [...] It can be used both as an encyclopedia – a source of facts on specific organisms – and as a source of ideas and generalizations about tropical ecology."
– Alan P. Smith, Ecology
