The fascinating story of the discovery of Sri Lanka's biodiversity, from the beginnings of European colonization to the post-Independence era, is told through the lives of the explorers, artists and scientists who discovered, depicted and described the island's plants and animals.
The history comes to life through more than 300 photos of paintings, prints and portraits of all key figures. Pearls, Spices and Green Gold is an invaluable source-book of biographical and historical information for anyone interested in Sri Lankan natural history.
