The western Amazon may well be the single richest edible fruit region in the world, and most of this flavorful biodiversity is found in wetlands. Some of wetland fruits are already being harvested on a large scale and they are important to local economies, while others are being experimented with for commercial production.
This book is richly illustrated with nearly 250 beautiful colour photographs of river peoples of the Peruvian Amazon and the edible fruits they collect. The book is written for a general audience interested in Amazon ecology, botany, and conservation.
