The flora of Guatemala is one of the most rich and diverse of Central America. This diversity is due to a combination of varied climates, soils and relief as well as a complex geological history. These characteristics allow for very different ecosystems to be present in such a small country. The montane forests need special attention and conservation because of their high species diversity and endemism.
This book not only emphasizes the common flora of the montane forests, but also points out rare plants. A glossary of technical terms is also included. The guide does not include palms, ferns, grasses or mosses.
